Chrissie and Jade spend their days waiting; waiting for the postman, waiting for the kettle to boil and waiting for Coronation Street. They won't shop in Argos 'cos we're waiting for IKEA'. Set in the heart of 'new' Dublin, where night wear is day wear and bitching is everywhere.
Pimlico flats is akin to 'Cheers', everybody knows your name, your business, your record and what you’re having for dinner. Nothing much changes in Pimlico, each day begins and ends the same; it's what happens in between that keeps the neighbours interested. The only current affairs these girls are concerned with is whether Mrs Dignam is having it off with Gunner Eye Gilby.
The Celtic tiger has been and gone and they never even stroked it.
'Recession? Is dat a new fragrance by Calvin Klein?’
A heart-warming story of friendship, family, community and sunbed obsessives, 'Waiting for IKEA' will tickle your funny-bone with its unforgettable characters and colourful language.
