Summary

Twenty-year-old Sharon Rabbitte is pregnant. She's also unmarried, living at home, working in a grocerystore, and keeping the identity a secret. Her own father, Jimmy Sr., is shocked by the news. Her mother says very little. Her friends and neighbors all want to know whose "snapper" Sharon is carrying.

In his sparkling second novel, Roddy Doyle observes the progression of Sharon's pregnancy and its impact on the Rabbitte family--especially on Jimmy Sr--with wit, candor, and surprising authenticity.
