Jimmy Rabbitte is unemployed and rapidly running out of money. His best friend Bimbo has been made redundant at the company where he has worked for many years. The two old friends are out of luck and out of options. That is, until Bimbo finds a dilapidated 'chipper van' and the pair decide to go into business...

By the bestselling author of The Commitments and The Snapper, The Van is a tender tale of male friendship, swimming in grease and stained with ketchup.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A wonderfully funny book, that crackles and spits like fat in the fryer. It is also very touching...fine entertainment * Daily Telegraph *
The last novel of his superb trilogy about the Rabbitte family of North Dublin...often hilarious, always enthralling and - this really is the case - unputdownable * Sunday Times *
Roddy Doyle is a phenomenon... The Van is not just a very funny book, it is also faultless comic writing * New Statesman *
There have been no novels published this year which are as funny, as understanding about the triumphs and indignities of family life, or as brave in touching upon the raw nerves of the male psyche * Guardian *
