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.
Here's a conversation log from 2 elder man talking about current affairs linked to their past. All while swearing and pissing each other. It is written in spoken Irish, I believe, sometimes I found it tiring but it helps to put a voice to their dialog. Some I didn't understand, but I did laugh several times. I might consider reading other Fiction from him.
