This is just one of the tales in Roddy Doyle's first-ever collection of stories, The Deportees. They have one thing in common: someone born in Ireland meets someone who has come to live there.

In Black Hoodie, three kids shoplift as an educational service to shopowners, and end up conducting an experiment on racial profiling, getting them an unforseen trip downtown. With empathy and insight, The Deportees in all its stories takes a new slant on the immigrant experience, something of increasing relevance in today's Ireland. Download and start listening now!

    " A bit uneven but good--worth it for The New Boy. "

    " Hilarious vignettes about the super-accelerated melting pot that is Ireland. "

    " A great collection of stories dealing primarily with Irish pride and race relations. Ireland has recently become a melting pot of non Irish culture. This book deals with race relations from the Irish perspective. "

    " Roddy Doyle must have been hard up for some cash and decided to publish this book. Sad to say, as much as I love him this was not his best. True, this was a collection of short stories that appeared in an Irish newspaper so, of course themes and development had to be truncated but, geez. Why publish a book with the stories? I mean, I was entertained a bit but this was certainly nothing to get excited over. "
