Praise

The Deportees confirms Doyle’s standing as a rare genius of socially conscious literary comedy. . . . His mastery of the ordinary Dubliners’ speech informs all these stories and lends them an urgent credibility.”
–Los Angeles Times

“Doyle’s short stories rest on the comical limitations–and emotional largess–of his Irish characters. . . . At the same time, they question what it means to be Irish when the face of Ireland has changed. In exploring the theme, Doyle makes sport of everyone.”
–San Francisco Chronicle

“One of the delights of Doyle’s work is its fearlessness. . . . In book after book he throws himself into the voices and hearts of his characters. . . . All of these stories are about blended worlds and the problems inherent in that blending, no matter what wealth or luxury a place affords.” 
–The New York Times Book Review
