Roddy Doyle's acclaimed Booker Prize-nominated novel, "a darker portrayal of midlife crisis and an expansively farcical chain of misadventures" ("The New York Times Book Review")
Jimmy Rabitte, Sr., is unemployed, spending his days alone and miserable. When his best friend, Bimbo, also gets laid off, they keep busy by being miserable together. Things seem to look up when they buy a decrepit fish-and-chips van and go into business, selling cheap grub to the drunk and the hungry--and keeping one step ahead of the environmental health officers.
Set during the heady days of Ireland's brief, euphoric triumphs in the 1990 World Cup, "The Van" is a tender and hilarious tale of male friendship and family life.
