9780143121060: Bullfighting: Stories

A second collection of stories from the Booker Prize-winning author of Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha

Watch for Roddy Doyle’s new novel, Smile, coming in October of 2017

 

Roddy Doyle has won acclaim for his wry wit, his uncanny ear, and his remarkable ability to fully capture the voices and hearts of his characters. Bullfighting, his second collection of stories, offers a series of bittersweet takes on men and middle age, revealing a panorama of Ireland today. Moving from classrooms to graveyards, from local pubs to bullrings, these tales of taking stock and reliving past glories feature men concerned with loss—of their place in the world, of their power, virility, health, and ability to love.

About the Author:

Roddy Doyle is an internationally bestselling writer. His first three novels—The Commitments, The Snapper, and the 1991 Booker Prize finalist The Van—are known as The Barrytown Trilogy. He is also the author of the novels Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha (1993 Booker Prize winner), The Woman Who Walked into Doors, and A Star Called Henry, and a non-fiction book about his parents, Rory & Ita. Doyle has also written for the stage and the screen: the plays Brownbread, War, Guess Who's Coming for the Dinner, and The Woman Who Walked Into Doors; the film adaptations of The Commitments )as co-writer), The Snapper, and The Van; When Brendan Met Trudy (an original screenplay); the four-part television series Family for the BBC; and the television play Hell for Leather. Roddy Doyle has also written the children's books The Giggler Treatment, Rover Saves Christmas, and The Meanwhile Adventures and contributed to a variety of publications including The New Yorker magazine and several anthologies. He lives in Dublin.

Review:

"There is not a writer currently working in the English language who can match Doyle for the fluency with which he tacks back and forth between hilarious and the heartbreaking."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Doyle never tells a reader what to think and so preserves a sense of wonder and interpretation that is pure oxygen to the story form."
--Los Angeles Times

"These stories feel natural, autobiographical, like the kind of thing a man might tell you over a warm beer in a quiet bar."
--The Boston Globe
