Young Men: Rob Doyle

  • Te Auaha, Cimena 65 Dixon Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

Rob Doyle (Ireland) is author of the novel Here are the Young Men and the collection of short stories This is the Ritual. Doyle’s work is praised for its emotional intelligence and crackling wit as much for his ability to write flawed characters in a very flawed world. Of his novel, John Boyne says “A powerful, passionate and electrifying novel. Many writers try to recreate the traumas and anxieties of teenage years in fiction but very few manage it with as much conviction as Rob Doyle”. Charlotte Graham-McLay speaks to Rob about artistic influences, difficult characters and philosophy in fiction.
