Roddy Doyle captivated audiences around the world when Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha won the 1993 Booker Prize. Doyle followed that success with The Woman Who Walked into Doors, an acclaimed novel with a narrator critics compared to Joyce's Molly Bloom. Now, the finest Irish writer of his generation enchants us once again with A Star Called Henry.

With his trademark sharp-edged wit, Roddy Doyle introduces Henry Smart -- adventurer, IRA assassin, and lover. A Star Called Henry takes us through Henry's early years of reckless heroism and adventure, from the courtship of his young mother and one-legged father to his own childhood on the streets of Dublin; from his role as a valiant soldier fighting in the 1916 Easter Rising to that of a young father and rebel.

At once an epic, a love story, and a portrait of Irish history, A Star Called Henry is a tour de force told in a voice that is both quintessentially Irish and inimitably Roddy Doyle's.
