Here Are the Young Men: Salon with Rob Doyle In association with the Irish Arts Club

On Tuesday 11th November the Bloomsbury Institute is delighted to present Rob Doyle, interviewed by Shevaun Wilder

When Rob Doyle’s powerful debut novel Here Are the Young Men was published, it caused a sensation in his native Ireland, with the Sunday Times declaring: ‘God may be dead, but a new literary star is born’.
On Tuesday 11th November the Bloomsbury Institute is delighted to present Rob Doyle, visiting from Ireland, who will read from his novel and be interviewed on stage by Shevaun Wilder, Director of the Irish Arts Club and a leading figure in the Irish Literary Society.
Meet Matthew, Rez, Cocker and Kearney. Facing the void of their post-school lives, the boys spend their first summer of freedom in a savage apprenticeship on the streets of Dublin. Roaming aimlessly through the city, fuelled by drugs and dark fantasies, the teenagers spiral into self-destruction, fleeing a reality they despise.
A fierce, shocking, blackly comic wild ride of a novel, Here Are the Young Men has been described as the Irish Trainspotting – a powerful literary statement about the lives of disaffected and disillusioned young people, from an extraordinary new voice.
