The Van

Roddy Doyle  (1991)

This Irish author, who wrote The Commitments and The Snapper, continues the saga of the Rabbitte family in this book filled with very real and very funny characters. Dad and his best buddy buy an ancient fish-and-chips van, dreaming of the fortune to be made selling greasy treats at the sea shore. The story, filled with amusing dialogue, follows the friendship of two men who do just enough to get by (health inspectors be damned.)
