BBC Blurb: Barrytown is buzzing with speculation. Sharon Rabbitte is pregnant and she's not telling anyone who the father is. But with tongues wagging and rumours mounting, just how long will it take everyone to work out who in Barrytown is the "snapper's" Da?
The second of Roddy Doyle's Barrytown series of novels, all to be dramatized by BBC Radio 4. After a drunken encounter at the soccer club do, Sharon is pregnant and much to the annoyance to her dad, Jimmy, refusing to name the baby's father. So when Jimmy gets wind that it might be someone close to home all hell breaks loose.
The cast includes David Wilmot as Jimmy Snr (Ripper Street, Anna Karenina) and Aoife Duffin as Sharon (Moone Boy.)
Written by Roddy Doyle Dramatised by Eugene O'Brien Producer: Gemma McMullan Director: Eoin O'Callaghan.

Io sono per i "cazzo" e i "vaffanculo" detti al momento giusto; quelli usati al posto delle virgole, come in questo caso, dopo un po' mi urtano.
La storia mi è parsa nulla di eccezionale e la protagonista, Sharon, di un'antipatia incredibile.
Ho scoperto che questo libro è il primo di una trilogia: bene, io mi fermo qui!

direbbe la buonanima della Mondaini.. è il commento che accompagna la lettura di questo racconto insulso. Una serie di dialoghi che cercano di far credere al lettore che basti aggiungere birra, pub, parolacce e un po' di sport per creare lo stereotipo perfetto del romanzo popolare irlandese...
