The guts

Doyle, Roddy, 1958-2014
Books
Jimmy Rabbitte is back. The man who invented the Commitments back in the eighties is now 47, with a loving wife, four kids - and bowel cancer. Jimmy still loves his music, and he still loves to hustle - his new thing is finding old bands and then finding the people who loved them enough to pay money for their resurrected singles and albums. On his path through Dublin he meets two of the Commitments - Outspan, whose own illness is probably terminal, and Imelda Quirk, still as gorgeous as ever. He is reunited with his long-lost brother and learns to play the trumpet.
