Some brief overview of this book

Donoghue finds her inspiration for these wry, robust tales in obscure scraps of historical records: an engraving of a woman giving birth to rabbits; a plague ballad; surgical case notes; theological pamphlets; an articulated skeleton. Here kings, surgeons, soldiers, and ladies of leisure rub shoulders with cross-dressers, cult leaders, poisoners, and arsonists.

Whether shes spinning the tale of an Irish soldier tricked into marrying a dowdy spinster, a Victorian surgeons attempts to improve women, a seventeenth-century countess who ran away to Italy disguised as a man, or an undead murderess returning for the maid she left behind to be executed in her place, Emma Donoghue brings to her stories an elegant, colorful prose filled with unforgettable sights, sounds and smells (Elle). Here she summons the ghosts of those women who counted for nothing in their own day, but who come to unforgettable life in fiction.

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.
