The Van Synopsis

Larry is unemployed and rapidly running out of money. His best friend Bimbo has been made redundant at the company where he has worked for many years. The two old friends are out of luck and out of options. That is, until Bimbo finds a dilapidated 'chipper van' and the pair decide to go into business...

From writer Roddy Doyle, the bestselling author of The Commitments and THE SNAPPER, THE VAN is a tender tale of male friendship, swimming in grease and stained with ketchup.
