The Woman Who Walked into Doors by Roddy Doyle

In support of National Domestic Violence Awareness month we’ll be reading Doyle’s powerful novel of down-trodden Paula Spencer, driven to alcoholism by her abusive husband, Charlo, the husband from hell. Incredible novel of blue collar life in Ireland in the 70s.

“It is the triumph of this novel that Mr. Doyle shows the inner life of this battered housecleaner to be of the same stuff as that of the heroes of the great novels of Europe.”—Mary Gordon New York Times Book Review
