Doyle, Roddy. Rory and Ita. London, Jonathan Cape, 2002. 14 cm x 22.5 cm. 338 pages. Illustrations in black and white throughout. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective Mylar. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

‘Rory & Ita, Roddy Doyle’s first non-fiction book, tells – largely in their own words – the story of his parents’ lives. They remember every detail of their Dublin childhoods – the people, the politics, idyllic times in the Wexford countryside for Ita, Rory’s apprenticeship as a printer. By the time they put down a deposit of two hundred pounds for a house in Kilbarrack, Rory was working as a compositor at the Irish Independent. By the time the first of their four children was born he’d become a teacher, at the School of Printing in Dublin. Kilbarrack began to change, and Ireland too. Through their eyes we see the intensely Catholic society of their youth being transformed into the vibrant, modern Ireland of today.

Both are marvellous talkers, so combined with Roddy Doyle’s legendary skill in illuminating ordinary experience, Rory & Ita makes for a book of tremendous warmth and humanity.’ (Amazon)
