Following on Two Pints, another hilarious book on everything that matters from the brilliant Roddy Doyle.
     Two men meet for a pint -- or two -- in a Dublin pub. They chew the fat, set the world to rights, curse the ref, say a last farewell. In this second collection of delicious comic dialogues Doyle's drinkers ponder:

   • a topless Kate Middleton 
   • Barack and Michelle Obama 
   • David Beckham ("Would you tattoo your kids' names on the back of your neck?" "They wouldn't fit.") 
   • Jimmy Savile ("a gobshite") 
   • the financial crisis (again) 
   • abortion (again) 
   • and horsemeat in your burger...
Once again, those we have lost troop through their thoughts -- Lou Reed, Seamus Heaney, Reg Presley, Nelson Mandella, Phil Everly, Margaret Thatcher, Shirley Temple -- and they still have that unerring ability to ask the really fundamental questions like "Would you take penalty points for your missis?"
RODDY DOYLE was born in Dublin in 1958. He is the author of ten acclaimed novels including The Commitments, The Snapper, and The Van, two collections of short stories, Rory & Ita, a memoir about his parents, and most recently, Two Pints, a collection of dialogues. He won the Booker Prize in 1993 for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha.

Editorial Reviews

• "It's so funny that I could read it over and over, and it will probably end up in the smallest room (really it's that good)." --Kate Saunders, SAGA
