Reviews

"Mr Doyle has made his own the gritty world of modern Dublin" * New York Times * "An absurd comedy of the commonplace...a charming, truthful and immensely funny story which leaves you gasping for more" * Sunday Times on THE COMMITMENTS * "Brilliant...it pushes Irish English to wonderful imaginative extremes" -- Tom Paulin on THE COMMITMENTS "While recognising that we have all sat po-faced through novels which other people have assured us were hilarious...all I can say is that The Snapper creased me up" -- Jonathan Coe on THE SNAPPER "A novel which is often hilarious, always enthralling and - this really is the case - unputdownable" * Sunday Times on THE VAN *
