What? On the day before his funeral Joe would be dead, wouldn't he?

Yes, he would...

I read a couple of Roddy Doyle's books in the past. And seen the movie, The Commitments. When I read his book, "The Guts", I flew to Dublin, Ireland and bought a copy. "The Guts" is truly a great work of art.
So then I read "Dead Man Walking." An endlessly looping, unhappy story. I like happy endings, and this book was most definitely NOT for me.
If you enjoy drama more than comedy, don't mind unhappy stories or even stories without hope, then you might try this book.
