A Doyle Reader: Writings from Home and Away


A Doyle Reader is a lively collection of personal writings, columns, and commentaries from a nationally known Newfoundland-born author and broadcaster, Marjorie Doyle.
Doyle tackles a range of topics without pulling punches: her St. John’s girlhood, Confederation, music, culture, and travel (whether as a sullen 10-year-old or an exhausted English teacher). Through it all is Doyle’s distinctive voice: patriotic, passionate, and relentlessly funny.
