Roddy Doyle and Roy Keane

John Spain Books Editor

Booker-winning author Roddy Doyle and football hard man Roy Keane -- it could be a publishing marriage made in heaven or hell, depending on how things turn out.

First of all, as well as being one of the best-selling Irish authors of all time, Roddy is a big football fan. That's a positive, because he knows the game inside out and he won't be asking Roy any stupid questions.

But there's a problem. Roddy Doyle was never a Manchester United admirer, even in the glory days when Keane was the leader.
