Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.


Prize-winner Roddy Doyle's novel is the story of an ordinary woman from Dublin and her stormy relationship with her husband Charlo.
