Roddy Doyle has earned a devoted following amongst those who appreciate his sly humor, acute ear for dialogue, and deeply human portraits of contemporary Ireland. The Deporteesis Doyle’s first-ever collection of short stories, and each tale describes the cultural collision—often funny and always poignant—between a native and someone new to the fast-changing country. From a nine-year- old African boy’s first day at school to a man who’s devised a test for Irishness”to the return of The Commitments’s Jimmy Rabbitte and the debut of his new multicultural band, Doyle offers his signature take on the immigrant experience in a volume reminiscent of his beloved early novels.
