I really enjoyed the snapper and the van. I think vaguely of Sharon tanning neatly "like a well turned kebab" whenever my knees nose and elbows go pink with the sun

A bit of The Van made me laugh out loud (the bit with the nappy)

Not sure I've read any Roddy Doyle but I saw the Snapper at the cinema, it was funny.
Started 1989 (What We Talk About...Love, now WETAWWTAL) and it's ok I suppose. Some stories are better than others. He's not exactly Maugham though.
