To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It''s where he was born and where he and his Ma eat and play and learn. At night, Ma puts him safely to sleep in the wardrobe, in caseOld Nick comes.

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it''s the prison where Old Nick has kept her for seven years, since she was nineteen. Through ingenuity and determination, Ma has created a life for herself and her son, but she knows it''s not enough for either ofthem. Jack''s curiosity is building alongside Ma''s desperation -- and Room can''t contain either of them for much longer...

Told entirely in the inventive, often funny voice of Jack, Room is a celebration of the resilient bond between parent and child, and a brilliantly executed novel about a journey from one world to another.

About the Author

"I was gripped by Room as soon as I discerned its startling premise. It is an almost macabre and completely accomplished novel, one that places Emma Donoghue in the company of writers such as Hilary Mantel and Muriel Spark -- writers who address evil in their works without flinching.Room is, however, leavened by one of the most convincing portrayals of love I have come across in literature or in the world outside it.Room deserves a wide readership. It should inspire a dialogue among its readers about how a life -- how all of our lives -- can be redeemed through the telling of stories, and through ingenuity, loyalty, bravery, hope and love."
- Anne Giradini, author of Advice for Italian Boys ()

Editorial Reviews

"I loved Room. Such incredible imagination, and dazzling use of language. And with all this, an entirely credible, endearing little boy. It''s unlike anything I''ve ever read before."
- Anita Shreve, author of The Pilot''s Wife ()
