Rob Doyle’s 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 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 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 this year.
