Synopsis

The next round in the beloved Two Pints series from the ever-brilliant, always hilarious imagination of bestselling author of The Commitments and Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha.

Two men meet for a pint - or three - in a Dublin pub.

They chew the fat, set the world to rights and mourn friends gone: David Bowie, Prince, Princess Leia and Young Frankenstein. Around them the world of Brexit, Trump, and referendums storm, but some things - good things - never change.

Inspired by the last five years of news, Roddy Doyle's Two for the Road offers a strong brew of Roddy Doyle's comic genius - to be downed in one riotous sitting, or savoured over, laugh after laugh.

External Reviews

"These short, punchy sketches are wickedly funny, oddly affecting and completely life-affirming." - Sunday Mirror.

"Very funny. The kind of book that you read in public at your own risk." - The Herald.

"Third in this serious of books I've had the great pleasure to read. The character's are just lovable dicks. Their world outlook is probably shared by most men around Ireland and the UK. Maybe the whole world. A little bit scary if true. I can imagine Mr Doyle sitting in his local Dublin drinking pit, listening to the bar room philosophers, wax lyrical on every subject in that day's rag. And then with undoubted embellishment, nit to mention, a fair amount literary talent, proceeded to create these wonderful, funny book." - Amazon Review.
