Some brief overview of this book

To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; its where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows its not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, one that relies on her young sons bravery and a lot of luck. What she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, ROOM is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another.

A few words about book's author

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 (Slammerkin, Life Mask, Landing, The Sealed Letter) 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. For more information, visit www.emmadonoghue.com.

Good To Know

Some outtakes from our interview with Donoghue The youngest of eight children, I would never have been conceived if a papal bull hadnt guilt-tripped my poor mother into flushing her pills down the toilet. The nearest Ive ever got to honest toil was a chambermaiding job in Wildwood, New Jersey, at the age of 18. I got fired for my low bathroom standards. My lover and I have a one-year-old son called Finn, whose favorite thing is to rip books out of my hands and eat them. I am clumsy, a late and nervous driver, and despise all sports except a little gentle dancing or yoga. I have never been depressed or thrown a plate, which I attribute to the cathartic effects of writing books about people whose lives are more grueling than mine. I am completely unobservant and couldnt tell you how many windows there are in our living room. I would be miserable in beige; I mostly wear red, purple, and black. The way to my heart is through Belgian milk chocolate.
