This book examines "The Barrytown Trilogy" and the Alan Parker and Stephen Frears' films with the aim of exploring the evidence for the existence of a privileged relationship between narrative form and the demands of the screen in Doyle's work. The publication of The Snapper and The Van signalled the emergence of a significant new voice in Irish fiction. This book traces the genesis and impact of the change in Ireland's fortunes on the work of Doyle, Parker and Frears and shows how the increasing de-differentiation of boundaries between economy and culture meant that a body of literary and cinematographic work like the Trilogy was as much a contributory factor to the contemporary transformation of Ireland as a reflection of it.

Michael Cronin is Associate Professor and Director of the Centre for Translation and Textual Studies at Dublin City University.
