|Plot Summary of The Snapper|
|"This book is second in the Barrytown trilogy (first book: The Commitments; third book: The Van).
When Shannon Rabbite gets pregnant out of wedlock it is a great shock to her family and sets tongues wagging throughout the whole neighbourhood. She refuses to reveal who the father is, but when rumours start to spread that it's one of her father's friends, she invents a story about having had a one night stand with a foreign sailor and keeps on telling it until people start believing her. The story follows her through the pregnancy and the relationship with her family, especially her father."
