Praise for Room:

'Emma Donoghue's writing is superb alchemy, changing innocence into horror and horror into tenderness' Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife

'One of the most profoundly affecting books I've read in a long time' John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

'Sophisticated in outlook and execution . . . Utterly plausible, vividly described' New York Times

'Absorbing, truthful and beautiful . . . it is a kind of sustained poem in praise of motherhood and parental love' Observer

'Donoghue mines material that on the face of it appears intractably bleak and surfaces with a powerful, compulsively readable work of fiction' Irish Times

Born in Dublin in 1969, Emma Donoghue is an Irish emigrant twice over: she spent eight years in Cambridge doing a PhD in eighteenth-century literature before moving to London, Ontario, where she lives with her partner and their two children. She also migrates between genres, writing literary history, biography, stage and radio plays as well as fairy tales and short stories. She is best known for her novels, which range from the historical (Frog Music, Slammerkin, Life Mask, Landing, The Sealed Letter and The Wonder) to the contemporary (Stir-Fry, Hood, Landing). Her international bestseller Room was a New York Times Best Book of 2010 and was a finalist for the Man Booker, Commonwealth, and Orange Prizes.
