The Guts by Roddy Doyle

Recommended by Jeff in Technical Servicesguts

Twenty years ago Jimmy Rabbitte founded and managed an Irish soul band called The Commitments in fictional Barrytown. Now he’s back with a wife, four kids, a successful website dedicated to obscure Irish traditional, pop and punk acts … and cancer.

If you’re not familiar with Roddy Doyle you may want to start with the first book in the Barrytown trilogy, The Commitments, since this is somewhat a sequel to that series. I enjoyed this book a great deal as it’s not a depressing account of Jimmy’s bout with cancer but a journey through his life. Roddy Doyle has a great ear for dialogue …”It’s grand!”
