Meet the Rabbitte family, motley bunch of loveable ne'er-do-wells whose everyday purgatory is rich with hangovers, dogshit and dirty dishes. When the older sister announces her pregnancy, the family are forced to rally together and discover the strangeness of intimacy. But the question remains: which friend of the family is the father of Sharon's child?
What the papers say:
"A superb creation, exploding with cheerful chauvinism and black Celtic humour... You finish the book, hungry for more" The Times "While recognising that we have all sat po-faced through novels which other people have assured us are hilarious... all I can say is that The Snapper creased me up" -- Jonathan Coe Guardian "Not since I first delved into Flann O'Brian have I so consistently laughed out loud while reading a book" Sunday Tribune
