Rob Doyle


Sunday 22 October 12noon
Medieval Museum Garden Room

Rob Doyle’s widely acclaimed first novel, Here Are the Young Men, was selected as one of Hot Press magazine’s '20 Greatest Irish Novels from 1916-2016'. His second book, This Is the Ritual (Bloomsbury) was a book of the year in the New Statesman, Irish Times and Sunday Times. The Sunday Independent called it ‘a masterstroke in experimental short fiction brimming with ideas, vulgarity and intelligence.’ Doyle’s writing has been published widely, in the Guardian, Vice, BBC World Service, Observer, Dublin Review, Irish Times and elsewhere. He is the editor of the Dalkey Archive’s anthology of Irish Literature to be published later this year.
