Reading More of Roddy Doyle provides an in-depth analysis of Roddy Doyle?s work since 1999. Doyle is unique in that he is constantly experimenting with different genres, including: screenplays, biographies, children?s stories, novels, short stories and television. Interestingly, he not only deals with contemporary issues (such as alcoholism and spousal abuse) but has also attempted to contemporize Irish and American history. Caramine White, PhD, offers an overview of Doyle?s oeuvre followed by critical analyses of each of Doyle?s more recent works. All of the major works of fiction are discussed (A Star Called Henry; Oh, Play that Thing; Paula Spencer and The Dead Republic) together with the two short story collections (The Deportees and Bullfighting). White also explores how the memoir Rory and Ita sheds light on Doyle?s other works as well as on the author himself. An analysis of his short stories, screenplays, children?s books, and stage plays is also included. A lengthy and candid interview with Doyle concludes the book.
