Look for Roddy Doyle's new novel, Smile, coming in October of 2017 The Barrytown Trilogy gathers Roddy's Doyle's first three novels into one volume: The Commitments, one of the funniest rock'n'roll novels ever written, about a group of aspiring musicians on a mission to bring soul to Dublin; The Snapper, about the progression of twenty-year-old Sharon Rabbitte's pregnancy on her family; and The Van, a finalist for the Booker Prize, a tender and hilarious tale of male friendship, midlife crisis, and family life, set during the heady days of Ireland's brief, euphoric triumphs in the 1990 World Cup.
