New Proofs

Look to Your Wife by Paula Byrne

November 9, 2017

A debut novel by a bestselling non-fiction author, this is a witty, wholly entrancing story of the pleasures, pains and obsessions of contemporary life.

Lisa Blaize, a teacher and would-be fashion writer, has just married the headmaster of their prize-winning inner-city school. But his high-flying career takes him to a very different school and town, where Lisa feels uncomfortable and trapped. So she turns to the one place where she feels she can be uninhibited.

But ‘Twitter may be my undoing’, as Lisa herself says. She gets addicted to flirtation in 140 characters. Soon she is being stalked online and mysterious anonymous letters start arriving in the post. But what the troll doesn’t know is that Lisa has been harbouring a real secret…

A wonderful setting in the world of schools – the teachers and the staff room, the pupils and parents, the competition and the gossip – is complemented by a lively cast of characters of whom one wants to know so much more
