The Commitments

Publisher: Vintage Books
"A charming, truthful and immensely funny story which leaves you gasping for more." --Sunday Times
     Barrytown, Dublin, has something to sing about. The Commitments are spreading the gospel of the soul. Ably managed by Jimmy Rabitte, brilliantly coached by Joel 'The Lips' Fagan, their twin assault on Motown and Barrytown takes them by leaps and bounds from Paris Hall to immortality on vinyl. But can the Commitments live up to their name?


   • "A contender for the funniest debut of the year... young, feisty, funky, rude, unpretentious and great fun." --Time Out 

   • "An Irish version of The Blues Brothers... authentic and brilliantly funny." --Literary Review
