Ten top books about Ireland

One of Marjorie Kehe's ten best books about Ireland, as shared at the Christian Science Monitor:
The Commitments by Roddy Doyle.

You could pick up any Roddy Doyle work and learn a good bit about life in Ireland, but this story of a group of working-class Irish kids who form a band and hope to bring soul to Dublin is particularly winning.
Read about another entry on the list.

The Commitments is among four books that changed Maureen McCarthy, Dorian Lynskey's ten best fictional musicians, and Tiffany Murray's top ten rock'n'roll novels.
