Waterstones Says

Collecting together a year’s worth of his popular columns from the Irish Independent, Charlie Savage presents Roddy Doyle’s irascible creation in all his blundering glory. Encountering everything from Twitter to transsexuality with the same air of bewilderment, Charlie attempts to make sense of a world that seems, suddenly, to have left him behind. A gently funny view of the world through the eyes of an archetypal middle-aged Dubliner, best consumed with a pint at your elbow.

Meet Charlie Savage: a middle-aged Dubliner with an indefatigable wife, an exasperated daughter, a drinking buddy who's realized that he's been a woman all along...

Compiled here for the first time is a whole year's worth of Roddy Doyle's hilarious series for the Irish Independent. Giving a unique voice to the everyday, he draws a portrait of a man - funny, loyal, somewhat bewildered - trying to keep pace with the modern world (if his knees don't give out first).
