“Room” For Donoghue

Longlisted for the 2010 Man Booker Prize, Emma Donoghue’s latest novel is a compelling tale of five-year-old Jack and his mother, who live in a single small room. Their only contact with the outside world is through a mysterious figure known only as Old Nick. Emotionally intense, poignant yet funny, and superbly written, ROOM explores such issues as a child’s perception of reality, a mother’s desperate need for freedom, and the sometimes heartbreaking quest for normalcy.

This one has already gone on my wish list!
