Fiction • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Roddy Doyle's latest collection of short stories, read in his distinctive Irish brogue, shines a light on the impact of living in the midst of a worldwide pandemic these last two years. As he navigates these 10 short stories, his delivery remains steady and strong while balancing pathos and humor. The stories are all the more powerful as he fills the role of the narrator throughout. While he doesn't give the characters unique voices, his consistent, balanced delivery captures our common humanity. The characters are obviously Irish, yet the challenges, regrets, and actions they recount are recognizable by all. Relationships are strained and healed as the stories celebrate life and resiliency.
