Roddy Doyle is to write Roy Keane’s memoir, called The Second Half. It will be published this autumn.
The Bookseller reports:
Keane said: “I am very happy to be working with Roddy Doyle on this book, and look forward to the experience.”
Doyle said: “Ten years ago I was buying something in a shop in New York and I handed my credit card to the young African man behind the counter. He read ‘Bank of Ireland’ on the card, looked at me and said: ‘Ireland – Roy Keane.’ I’m delighted to be writing this book with Roy.”
