Writer Roddy Doyle says he never kills off his characters, which means he can revisit them decades later. But in his latest book, one of his famous protagonists must face his own mortality, on top of middle age and a changing music industry. Doyle talks to Jeffrey Brown about “The Guts,” and band manager Jimmy Rabbitte, first featured in “The Commitments” in 1987.
