Roddy Doyle - Studio One Book Club

Author Roddy Doyle's new novel The Guts revisits characters from the Barrytown Trilogy, including The Commitments, The Snapper and The Van and the reviews have been fantastic!

It's been 10 years since Roddy Doyle was in the Studio One Book Club and there was so much to talk about since that memorable visit; novels, children's books, films and his new stage play based on The Commitments.

The first half of this special interview airs Sat and Sun Mar 1 and 2 after the 8:00 am news each morning.
