The remarkable memoir of an ordinary Irish woman and her extraordinary life

'I woke up and saw myself as a human being again.

For the first time in my life I had something to say. My mind came alive with the memories of my childhood. Words began to flow...No more would I be the "illiterate fool" that John called me.' When seventy-five-year-old Maura Murphy discovered she had cancer, she left her husband of fifty years and started recording her story.

Fearlessly honest, Maura's memoir takes you from her early days running wild in the 1920s Irish countryside, to her destructive marriage to a hard-working, hard-drinking womaniser, the birth of her nine children, leaving Ireland for 1950s Birmingham, and a life-or-death choice that would change her for ever.

Told with biting wit, Don't Wake me at Doyles contains all the explosive power of Angela's Ashes - a remarkable story of an ordinary woman and an extraordinary life.
