My reading choices are pretty eclectic (weird?) I am a big fan of Ian McEwan, Roddy Doyle, Zadie Smith, Annie Proulx, Lionel Shriver, Toni Morrison etc I enjoy a classic now and again too. Ok I confess... I will actually read almost anything! The book that probably had the most influence on me was Robert Tressel, 'The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists' The last book I read was 'Maggie and Me', by Damian Barr.

Maeve Binchy Snell (28 May 1940 – 30 July 2012), known as Maeve Binchy, was an Irish novelist, playwright, short story writer, columnist, and speaker best known for her humorous take on small-town life in Ireland, her descriptive characters, her interest in human nature, and her often clever surprise endings.Her novels, which were translated into 37 languages, sold more than 40 million copies worldwide, and her death, announced by Vincent Browne on Irish television late on 30 July 2012, was mourned as the passing of Ireland's best-loved and most recognisable writer. Her books have outsold those of other Irish writers such as Samuel Beckett, Roddy Doyle, Seamus Heaney, James Joyce, Edna O'Brien, Oscar Wilde, and W. B. Yeats. She cracked the US market, featuring on The New York Times best-seller list and in Oprah's Book Club. Recognised for her "total absence of malice" and generosity to other writers, she finished 3rd in a 2000 poll for World Book Day, ahead of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and Stephen K ...

If haven't read Roddy Doyle yet, you're just not reading.
If you aren't familiar with Roddy Doyle, he wrote "The Commitments." If you haven't seen "The Commitments," you probably won't get the sting of Irish humor at its sharpest. Most of the X-rated words are no more offensive than "heck" or "darn" are to us, but be warned: this dialogue is not for the easily offended. I nearly fell off the chair. If you're a consultant of some flavor like I am, you'll find this telling. I worked as a consultant to Ireland's largest bank for several years, and spent a fair time dodging the barbs that were thrown at me. Read the comments if you're inclined. It's no wonder Roddy is lionized at home. Cheers.
Roddy Doyle has got a new novel out and he loves his characters so much he can't let go of them for too long. So here comes the sequel to the glorious The Commitments. And I personally can't wait.

They say that swearing isn't big and it isn't clever. Maybe so, but I'm reading Two Pints by Roddy Doyle and swearing can be very, very funny. No storyline - just a series of conversations between two guys over a pint. Two foul-mouthed, shockingly funny guys
just to clarify - due to unavoidable family commitments (no, not the Roddy Doyle soul musicians, we mean the ones we do christmas with), talanas aren't able to play the london show on our tour with The Monolith Deathcult. don't worry though; we ARE on for ALL other UK dates! however, replacing us rather splendidly on march 1st at camden's black heart are fellow brothers in forward-thinking death mentality, De Profundis, plus hard-hitting progressi-romans Lunarsea have just been added to the bill. combined with Bloodguard, this should prove to be a night worth double-tying your shoelaces for. get down there, get on it and get... granary... bread. probably. yes.

I'd say it will be of interest for anyone who is thinking of starting a small business. It's certainly very enlightening. What struck me most about your book was just how hard you worked. As the mother of a 15 year old girl, that second last chapter had me ...
I've finished "Angela's Ashes" - oh my, so sad! - and straight away I've read "Slam", by Nick Hornby, which, despite being juvenile literature, is very interesting and funny. Now I'm reading The Snapper, by Roddy Doyle, and loving it.
Priceless. A perfect piece of Roddy Doyle. Wonderful, witty and wise … and very, very Irish.
