Roddy Doyle has won the Booker Prize and the Irish PEN Award, among others.

“Born in the slums, raised on the streets, caught up in the fight for a free Ireland at the age of fourteen, Henry Smart is, indisputably, a survivor. A Star Called Henry describes the first twenty years of Henry’s adventure-filled life in early twentieth-century Ireland.” —Penguin Random House

“Astonishing. . . . Narrated with a splendor, wit, and excitement that lift Doyle’s writing to a new level.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Doyle vividly portrays the wild passions of an Irish Everyman . . . [and] the birth of the modern Irish nation.” —Time

“Stunning . . . not only Doyle’s best novel yet; it is a masterpiece, an extraordinarily entertaining epic.” —The Washington Post
