The Snapper by Roddy Doyle

The Snapper is a brilliant comedy of everyday life in Barrytown, north Dublin. The novel follows the course of a supermarket worker's unplanned pregnancy and the antics of her family and friends. Doyle captures brilliantly the atmosphere of a working-class Dublin family and community. His style is fast-paced and colloquial and his books extremely approachable.
Roddy Doyle was born in Dublin. He won the Booker Prize in 1993 for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha.
