"A wonderfully funny book, that crackles and spits like fat in the fryer. It is also very touching...fine entertainment" Daily Telegraph "The last novel of his superb trilogy about the Rabbitte family of North Dublin...often hilarious, always enthralling and - this really is the case - unputdownable" Sunday Times "Roddy Doyle is a phenomenon... The Van is not just a very funny book, it is also faultless comic writing" New Statesman "There have been no novels published this year which are as funny, as understanding about the triumphs and indignities of family life, or as brave in touching upon the raw nerves of the male psyche" GuardianBook Description:
