The Barrytown Trilogy: "The Commitments", "The Snapper" and "The Van" by Roddy Doyle


Quick Overview

Together in one volume, this book contains Roddy Doyle's trilogy about the Rabbitte family of Barrytown, north Dublin. "The Commitments", "The Snapper" and "The Van", which was shortlisted for the 1991 Booker Prize.


This volume brings together under one cover Roddy Doyle's three acclaimed novels about the Rabbite family from Dublin. "The Commitments" traces the rapid rise and even more rapid fall of Jimmy Rabbite Jr's unusual soul band. In "The Snapper", Sharon Rabbite's pregnancy sparks off intense speculation among her friends and family, but she is determined to reveal the identity of the father in her own time. "The Van", set during Ireland's 1990 World Cup attempt, follows the fortunes of Jimmy Sr and his friend Bimbo as they launch their travelling fish'n'chip shop on an unsuspecting Barrytown, learning much about themselves in the process.
