Roddy Doyle in Conversation with Sinéad Gleeson

Ennis Book Club Festival Extra

Join us for the first ever Ennis Book Club Festival Extra.

This promises to be a very special autumn event to celebrate the publication of the captivating new novel from the winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction.

Smile has all the features for which Roddy Doyle has become famous: the razor-sharp dialogue, the humour, the superb evocation of childhood – but this is a novel unlike any he has written before. When you finish the last page you will have been challenged to re-evaluate everything you think you remember so clearly. A great book-club choice!

Roddy Doyle was born in Dublin in 1958. He is the author of 11 acclaimed novels including The Commitments, The Snapper and The Van, two collections of short stories and Rory & Ita, a memoir about his parents. His most recent novel is The Guts. He won the Booker Prize in 1993 for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha.
