(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Davy and Joe have got a lot to catch up on. Drinking pals back in their Dublin days, Davy rarely sees Joe for a pint anymore - maybe one or two when Davy's over from England to check in on his elderly father.

But tonight, one pint will turn to three, and then five as Joe recounts a secret, leading the two men on a bender back to the haunts of their youth.

Joe has left his wife and family for another woman, Jessica. Davy knows her too, or he should - she was the girl of their dreams all those years ago, the girl with the cello in George's Pub.

As Joe's story unfolds across Dublin - pub after pub - so too do the memories of what eventually drove Davy from Ireland: his first meeting with Faye, the woman that would become his wife; his father's sombre disapproval; the pained spaces left behind when a parent dies.

As much a hymn to the Dublin and the pubs of one's youth as a delightfully comic, yet moving portrait of what it means to try to put into words the many forms love can take, Love marks a triumphant new turn for Roddy Doyle.

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