Description
From the Booker Prize-winning author of Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha , the follow up to his acclaimed debut novel The Commitments Watch for Roddy Doyle's new novel, Smile , coming in October of 2017 Twenty-year-old Sharon Rabbitte is pregnant. She's also unmarried, living at home, working in a grocery store, and keeping the father's 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.
