Description
A second collection of stories from the Booker Prize-winning author of Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha
Watch for Roddy Doyle’s new novel, Smile, coming in October of 2017

 

Roddy Doyle has won acclaim for his wry wit, his uncanny ear, and his remarkable ability to fully capture the voices and hearts of his characters. Bullfighting, his second collection of stories, offers a series of bittersweet takes on men and middle age, revealing a panorama of Ireland today. Moving from classrooms to graveyards, from local pubs to bullrings, these tales of taking stock and reliving past glories feature men concerned with loss—of their place in the world, of their power, virility, health, and ability to love.
