Two More Pints

Publisher: Jonathan Cape
Following on Two Pints, another hilarious book on everything that matters from the brilliant Roddy Doyle.
     Two men meet for a pint -- or two -- in a Dublin pub. They chew the fat, set the world to rights, curse the ref, say a last farewell. In this second collection of delicious comic dialogues Doyle's drinkers ponder:

   • a topless Kate Middleton 
   • Barack and Michelle Obama 
   • David Beckham ("Would you tattoo your kids' names on the back of your neck?" "They wouldn't fit.") 
   • Jimmy Savile ("a gobshite") 
   • the financial crisis (again) 
   • abortion (again) 
   • and horsemeat in your burger...
Once again, those we have lost troop through their thoughts -- Lou Reed, Seamus Heaney, Reg Presley, Nelson Mandella, Phil Everly, Margaret Thatcher, Shirley Temple -- and they still have that unerring ability to ask the really fundamental questions like "Would you take penalty points for your missis?"
