Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
This is the heart-rending story of a woman struggling to reclaim her dignity after a violent, abusive marriage and a worsening drink problem. Paula Spencer recalls her contented childhood, the audacity she learned as a teenager, the exhilaration of her romance with Charlo, and the marriage to him that left her powerless. Capturing both her vulnerability and her strength, Doyle gives Paula a voice that is real and unforgettable.

Review:
"In feeling the pulse of a raw Dublin suburb, Doyle is recording a beat that can be recognised all over the world" ( The Times)

"This new novel is Roddy Doyle's best to date. I cannot recall any writer who has better captured the vulnerability and courage of a woman trapped in a loveless marriage" ( Cork Examiner)

"Even more mesmerizing than his prize-winning Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha" ( Daily Mail)

"Impassioned, dignified and richly humane" ( Independent)

"It is the triumph of this novel that Doyle - entirely without condescension - shows the inner life of this battered housewife to be the same stuff as that of the heroes of the great novels of Europe" (Mary Gordon New York Times Book Review)

Review

Review:
The gritty, moving and mesmerising story of Paula Spencer, an ordinary woman whose extraordinary character will stay with you long after reading.
