Emma Donoghue Press Reviews

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

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

'Her contemporary thriller Room made the author an international bestseller, but this gripping tale offers a welcome reminder that her historical fiction is equally fine.' Kirkus, Starred Review
