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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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 *
"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 *
"His best work yet" * The Times *
"Compulsively readable" * Financial Times *
