In conversation with Liz Moore, best selling author of Long Bright River

Lauded for his ''marvelous'' and ''bloody brilliant'' (Toronto Star) works of fiction, prolific novelist, dramatist, children's author, and screenwriter Roddy Doyle's work is rooted in the vibrant colloquialisms and tight relationships of the Irish working class. His novel Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha won the Man Booker Prize, and his Barrytown series-comprised of The Commitments, The Snapper, The Van, and The Guts-were critical darlings and adapted into successful movies. In Love, Doyle tells an elegiac tale of two old drinking buddies who revisit the Dublin pubs and poignant pains of their youth.
