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.
The further misadventures of the Rabbitte family in working-class Dublin--from the author of The Commitments and The Snapper. This story follows Jimmy Rabbitte, Sr., and his best friend through Dublin, selling cheap grub to the drunk and hungry--keeping one step ahead of the health officials.
• "The last novel of his superb triology about the Rabbitte family of North Dublin... often hilarious, always enthralling and -- this really is the case -- unputdownable." --Sunday Times

I have been reading the Van with some pleasure lately. Its a very relaxing read and has some cultural antecdotes that are very enjoyable. Very earthy real characters. The book is really great for this class of reading.
