Two Pints, Hardback Book

Two Pints Hardback

Hardback

Description

Two men meet for a pint in a Dublin pub. They chew the fat, set the world to rights, take the piss...

They talk about their wives, their kids, their kids' pets, their football teams and - this being Ireland in 2011-12 -about the euro, the crash, the presidential election, the Queen's visit.

But these men are not parochial or small-minded; one of them knows where to find the missing Colonel Gaddafi (he's working as a cleaner at Dublin Airport); they worry about Greek debt, the IMF and the bondholders ( whatever they might be); in their fashion, they mourn the deaths of Whitney Houston, Donna Summer, Davy Jones and Robin Gibb; and they ask each other the really important questions like 'Would you ever let yourself be digitally enhanced?'Inspired by a year's worth of news, Two Pints distils the essence of Roddy Doyle's comic genius.

This book shares the concision of a collection of poems, and the timing of a virtuoso comedian.
