    Roddy Doyle 

  • Synopsis

    This is the world of the Pub Quiz, where men are men and the questions sting like crazy. George knows the capital city of every country in the world. Bertie can sniff out a trick question from a hundred paces. George can tell you who played Barney in 'Mission Impossible'. Bertie can tell you who played Barney's mother. On the first Monday of every month, these two giants of the Pub Quiz lock eyes across the five feet of drink dampened carpet that divides them.
