Join Emma Donoghue for lunch as she discusses her novel Room. This is an astonishing novel about the effects of captivity. To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it’s where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, when “Old Nick” visits, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Donoghue is the author of Slammerkin.
This novel is a tour de force and a big Book Passage favorite!
