Room - Emma Donoghue

Emma Donoghue’s powerful story starts with a mother and son living in an 11 x 11-foot Room (Back Bay, $14.99). Until he’s five, this space is the only world the boy, Jack, knows, and Donoghue lets him narrate what life is like with his Ma and the only other person Jack has ever known, the nocturnal visitor, Old Nick. When Jack and his mother are at last freed from their captivity, Jack’s compelling, unique voice makes the shock of discovery visceral. While Donoghue’s premise is grim, this is a story of love, endurance, and survival that’s by turns scary, insightful, and even funny. Jack is a character you won’t forget.
