The third of Roddy Doyle's Barrytown series of novels, all to be dramatized by BBC Radio 4.
Jimmy Rabbitte is unemployed and at an all-time low. Even Ireland qualifying for the 1990 World Cup has not pulled him out of the doldrums, he needs money and fast. So when his best mate Bimbo buys a dilapidated "chipper" van and offers him the chance of a partnership, this might well be the opportunity Jimmy has been waiting for.
What could be better than working with your best mate?
