Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Danny Murphy is going to meet his brother, Jimmy. They haven't seen each other in more than twenty years, and Danny is nervous. On the way to the pub, Danny begins to remember the good times and the bad times, the humor, the fights and the pivotal argument that finally drove them apart. Can they turn back the clock and become the pals they used to be? Or does bad blood go on? Danny doesn't know. From the bestselling author and screenwriter comes a story about family, jealousy, passion and redemption. Written in Roddy Doyle's distinctive, intimate style, here is a poignant observation of ordinary lives by a writer at his best. The Open Door Series: Originally designed to promote adult literacy in Ireland, these original stories from best-loved authors and new voices showcase some of our best writing in short fiction.
