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.

Review:

"A superb creation, exploding with cheerful chauvinism and black Celtic humour" (on The Snapper The Times)

"A novel which is often hilarious, always enthralling and - this is really the case - unputdownable" (on The Van The Times)

Book Description:

Gathered here in one volume, the three Rabbite family are among the best-loved works of the hilarious, Booker Prize-winner Roddy Doyle.
