Two More Pints Hardback
by 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 comic dialogues Doyle's drinkers ponder:- a topless Kate Middleton- Barack and Michelle Obama (`fuckin' gorgeous')- 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 Mandela (`he should never have left the Four Tops'), 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?'
