Authors: Roddy Doyle Quotes, Famous Roddy Doyle Quotes Quotations
I see people in terms of dialogue and I believe that people are their talk.
Roddy Doyle
If you're a writer in Dublin and you write a snatch of dialogue, everyone thinks you lifted it from Joyce. The whole idea that he owns language as it is spoken in Dublin is a nonsense. He didn't invent the Dublin accent. It's as if you're encroaching on his area or it's a given that he's on your shoulder. It gets on my nerves.
Roddy Doyle
It's a big con job. We have sold the myth of Dublin as a sexy place incredibly well; because it is a dreary little dump most of the time.
Roddy Doyle
On his home city
The Irish are the niggers of Europe … An' Dubliners are the niggers of Ireland … An' the northside Dubliners are the niggers o' Dublin - Say it loud. I'm black an' I'm proud.
Roddy Doyle
The Commitments
They'd been in the folk mass choir when they were in school but that, they knew now, hadn't really been singing. Jimmy said that real music was sex … They were starting to agree with him. And there wasn't much sex in Morning Has Broken or The Lord Is My Shepherd.
Roddy Doyle
The Commitments
Ulysses could have done with a good editor. You know people are always putting Ulysses in the top 10 books ever written but I doubt that any of those people were really moved by it.
Roddy Doyle
On James Joyce's novel Ulysses
