This was a real head scratcher. Certainly not as charming as previous Roddy Doyle books. I'm just not sure what to make of the ending. And even if the ending had made sense, the rest of the book was 🤷♀️. If hadn't been a selection for the Tournament of Books longlist, the description alone was not compelling enough to prompt a listen. I should listen to my instincts more when it comes to ToB.
