The Van Print
The Van Print
The third installment of Irish author Roddy Doyle’s ‘Barrytown Trilogy’, following ‘The Commitments’ and ‘The Snapper’, depicts the hilarious yet poignant adventures of Bimbo. Upon being fired from his job at the bakery, Bimbo and his best mate go into business for themselves and purchase a chipper (a fish and chips van); but will the pressures of financial success sour their friendship forever?
In November 1989, in Ireland, the baker Bimbo is fired from his job and he does not feel comfortable with the situation. His best friend Larry, who is also unemployed and living with his low welfare with his wife Mary and their children, is resigned with his situation and tries to console his friend. But Bimbo is supported by his wife Maggie and decides to buy an abandoned van without engine in a junkyard to open a business of hamburger, French fries and fried codfish and invites Larry to work with him. Soon they have financial success but their friendship is compromised.
