Jimmy Rabbitte, Sr. is unemployed, spending his days alone and miserable. When his best friend, Bimbo, also gets laid off, they keep by being miserable together. Things seem to look up when they buy a decrepit fish-and-chip van and go into business, selling cheap grub to the drunk and the hungry--and keeping one step ahead of the environmental health officers.

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.
