In the 1980s Jimmy formed the Commitments, a collective of Irish youths wanting to bring soul music to Dublin. Jimmy is now approaching fifty with a loving wife, four kids, and a recent cancer diagnosis that leaves him shattered and scared. He still loves his music-his new thing is finding old bands and the fans devoted enough to pay for their albums. As he battles his illness, Jimmy manages to reconnect with his own past, such as Commitments guitarist Liam and beautiful vocalist Imelda.

If you like Doyle's other books from the " The Barrytown Trilogy" you'll like this one. A continuation of the Barrytown series featuring the Rabbitte family. This book brings back the focus to Jimmy Jr the former manager from the Commitments. Now a middle age family man with a recent bowel cancer diagnosis. Or as Jimmy would say, "The Guts." Many references to Doyle's other Barrytown novels, The Commitments, The Snapper and The Van. A lot of great dialogue and inside look of a working class, blue collar Dublin family.
