The GutsBook - 2013
A triumphant return to the characters of Booker Prize-winning writer Roddy Doyle's breakout first novel, "The Commitments," now older, wiser, facing cancer, and battling through midlife. Jimmy Rabbitte is forty-seven-years-old, happily married, with four children, and he's just been diagnosed with colon cancer. As he struggles to come to terms with the news, he must also juggle the additional demands and delights of his business (reviving one-hit wonders from the 1970s and 1980s and selling their songs on kelticpunk.com), tracking down a long-lost brother, and his renewed friendship with Imelda Quirk, one of the Commitmentettes from all those years ago.
