Roddy Doyle talks about his novel The Guts, a follow-up to his debut novel The Commitments, which was about a group of ragtag, blue-collar Irish youths who are determined to bring Soul Music to Dublin in the 1980s. He returns to his character Jimmy Rabbitte nearly 30 years later—he’s now approaching 50 with a wife, four kids, and a recent cancer diagnosis.
