Overview

From the author of the worldwide bestseller Room: "Her greatest achievement yet...Emma Donoghue shows more than range with FROG MUSIC—she shows genius." — Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life

Summer of 1876: San Francisco is in the fierce grip of a record-breaking heat wave and a smallpox epidemic. Through the window of a railroad saloon, a young woman named Jenny Bonnet is shot dead.

The survivor, her friend Blanche Beunon, is a French burlesque dancer. Over the next three days, she will risk everything to bring Jenny's murderer to justice—if he doesn't track her down first. The story Blanche struggles to piece together is one of free-love bohemians, desperate paupers, and arrogant millionaires; of jealous men, icy women, and damaged children. It's the secret life of Jenny herself, a notorious character who breaks the law every morning by getting dressed: a charmer as slippery as the frogs she hunts.

In thrilling, cinematic style, FROG MUSIC digs up a long-forgotten, never-solved crime. Full of songs that migrated across the world, Emma Donoghue's lyrical tale of love and bloodshed among lowlifes captures the pulse of a boomtown like no other.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In a recent author Q and A, Emma Donoghue wrote, "One journalist kindly alerted me to the fact that there was a hoax in my Wikipedia entry, a claim that I was writing about 'the murder of a cross-dressing frog-catcher!'—and was abashed when I told him it was true." Fortunately, Jenny Bonnet, the pants-wearing victim in this evocative historical novel, is not painted here as an outlandish buffoon; in fact, she is modeled on an irrepressible, very real person who was savagely killed in San Francisco in 1876. Replete with vivid characters, lyrical asides and other atmospheric touches, Frog Music sounds just the right notes. Editor's recommendation.

Publishers Weekly
★ 12/16/2013
Donoghue’s first literary crime novel is a departure from her bestselling Room, but it’s just as dark and just as gripping as the latter. Based on the circumstances surrounding the grizzly real-life murder of Jenny Bonnet, a law-flouting, pants-wearing frog catcher who lived in San Francisco in the mid-1870s, this investigation into who pulled the trigger is told in episodic flashbacks from the point of view of Blanche Beunon. Blanche is a raunchy, self-absorbed burlesque dancer and French émigré who befriended the alluring Bonnet and was with her on the night she was killed. Also woven into the plot is Blanche’s sordid relationship with Albert Deneve, an ex–tightrope walker, and his minion Ernest, who may have had a hand in the murder while swindling Blanche out of house, home, and one-year-old baby. Aside from the obvious whodunit factor, the book is filled with period song lyrics and other historic details, expertly researched and flushed out. The sweltering heat wave and smallpox epidemic that afflicted thousands in 1876, the Sinophobic takedown of Chinese businesses, and the proliferation of baby farms—glorified dumping grounds for unwanted babies—are all integrated into the story of Bonnet’s tragic end. Donoghue’s signature talent for setting tone and mood elevates the book from common cliffhanger to a true chef d’oeuvre. (Apr.)
From the Publisher
"Donoghue's latest novel has many facets, all of them fascinating.... Like her hair-raising best-seller Room, it incorporates the elements of a thriller; in fact, there's enough puzzle here to qualify as a full-blooded mystery. Best of all, there's Donoghue's intricate examination of women in impossible circumstances, bound to repugnant men for survival but never broken by them.... Colorful French slang and period songs...flow through the novel lyrically, making the era as vital as the plot. Donoghue is acrobatic with her storytelling and language and paints the stinking city vividly.... [A] vibrant and remarkable novel."—San Jose Mercury News

"An engrossing read."—June Thomas, NY1's "The Book Reader"

"A page-turner of a mystery with rich historical texture.... Atop the mystery, Ms. Donoghue masterfully overlays another story about motherhood and obligation, and friendship-even desire-between women. [She] manifests her genius by weaving the two together."—Julie Hakim Azzam, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Where Donoghue excels is in her descriptions of 19th century squalor.... Poignant."—Elizabeth Hand, Los Angeles Times

"Endlessly intriguing.... You'll find yourself enraptured by the intricate plot developments that will keep you revising your version of the action from one hour to the next."—Maude McDaniel, BookPage

"Rich hauls of historical research, deeply excavated but lightly borne.... [An] ingenious telling."—David Kipen, Wall Street Journal

"[An] ebullient mystery..... Donoghue cross-cuts between Blanche's desperate present-time search and scenes from her Technicolor past with showstopping aplomb.... It's all great fun, and so richly atmospheric.... Astonishing details are scattered like party nuts.... Donoghue also provides riotous musical accompaniment for her narrative.... Call it a mind-bendingly original crime novel, or a dazzling historical mystery, but in the end, this is really a book about love-a mother's love for a strange child, for an exotic friend and finally, for herself."—Caroline Leavitt, San Francisco Chronicle

"In Jenny the frog-catcher, Donoghue has resurrected a true original-witty, perceptive, iconoclastic and nearly indomitable."—Kathy Ewing, Cleveland Plain Dealer

"FROG MUSIC is miles away from the traditional who-done-it, and rather more colorful than your mama's historical fiction...[and] should appeal to those who don't mind their history with grit and unflinching details."—Brooke Wylie, Examiner

"Whether the crime is stranger than fiction or simply more colorful than anything a writer would dare to invent, the true story of Jeanne Bonnet is a scandalous delight."—Sara Breselor, 7x7SF

"The authenticity Donoghue brings to her work, something of a signature, lends richness and verisimilitude to the book. FROG MUSIC is a can't-miss work."—Terri Schlichenmeyer, Washington Blade

"As with Room, the book thrives on Donoghue's precisely poignant details.... This is a book to cherish, to share with your friends and book clubs, to buy for every reader on your Christmas list, and to read again in a few years. Adored is not too strong a word to describe my feelings for it. My one wish: Emma Donoghue, could you please write faster?"—Joy Tipping, Dallas Morning News

"Room's eloquent author brings the same sensitivity to this period piece, which explores the unsolved 1876 San Francisco murder of Jenny Bonnet through the eyes of the bohemian friend she left behind."—InStyle

"The setting [Blanche] inhibits is alive, brimming with sin and music."—New Yorker

"Donoghue depicts with feeling the new parent's confusion, anxiety and guilt—not just 'Am I doing the right thing?' but 'Am I feeling the right thing-.... Respect for the facts lets the book sprawl towards its final revelations. The effect is a rough if vital music, not unlike Blanche's own repertoire."—Adrian Turpin, Financial Times

"Donoghue has a gift for place, for setting, for wringing anxiety and drama out of the spaces her characters occupy, as well as for taking real-life events and rendering them realer and sharper than they were the first time around.... It's a bizarre story through and through, and Donoghue more than does it justice, drawing for the reader a (clearly assiduously researched) world that feels both too strange to be real and too vivid not to be."—Ellen Cushing, East Bay Express

"The perfect highbrow historical murder mystery summer read.... Working from actual historic record, Donoghue...masterfully fleshes out San Francisco's demi-monde of French émigré performers and pimps.... [and her] pacing is exemplary.... FROG MUSIC also makes a case for the return of blatant eroticism to mainstream literature. Blanche Buenon's world is one of sex and prostitution, Jenny's one of subverting her gender expectations, and both women have a charged sexuality that simmers like that summer heat wave under the surface of the novel. Donoghue handles graphic sexual scenes deftly, never compromising the frank and lustful point of view of her main character."—Leigh Baldwin, San Antonio Current

Darin Strauss
"Emma Donoghue shows more than range with FROG MUSIC-she shows genius. Like and unlike her stunning ROOM, this novel lifts into view a strange crime, a remarkable woman, and is a Ringling Brothers-grade feat of narrative strength. As ever, Donoghue focuses on people on the skirts of the world, who make their way outside the common middle of things. Blanche and Jenny are characters you will never forget, filmed in vibrant, cinemascope prose, and they mark Emma Donoghue's greatest achievement yet."
Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"Donoghue's first literary crime novel is a departure from her bestselling Room, but it's just as dark and just as gripping as the latter.... Aside from the obvious whodunit factor, the book is filled with period song lyrics and other historic details, expertly researched and flushed out.... Donoghue's signature talent for setting tone and mood elevates the book from common cliffhanger to a true chef d'oeuvre."
Sarah Johnson
"Donoghue flawlessly combines literary eloquence and vigorous plotting in her first full-fledged mystery, a work as original and multifaceted as its young murder victim.... An engrossing and suspenseful tale about moral growth, unlikely friendship, and breaking free from the past."
From the Publisher
"More fine work from one of popular fiction's most talented practitioners.... Donoghue's vivid rendering of Gilded Age San Francisco is notable for her atmospheric use of popular songs and slang in Blanche's native French, but the book's emotional punch comes from its portrait of a woman growing into self-respect as she takes responsibility for the infant life she's created."—Kirkus Reviews

"Donoghue's evocative language invades the senses.... Readers won't quickly forget this rollicking, fast-paced novel, which is based on a true story and displays fine bits of humor with underlying themes of female autonomy and the right to own one's sexual identity."—Library Journal (Starred Review)

"Donoghue proves herself endlessly inventive....[She] nails both the period details and the atmosphere-think sweltering heat waves, dumping grounds for unwanted babies, and smallpox epidemics. This is the kind of book that will keep you up at night and make you smarter."—Julie Buntin, Cosmopolitan

"A riveting murder mystery.... Fans of Emma Donoghue's previous book Room...will be shocked yet delighted by the change of pace in her new novel."—Nathan Rostron, Bookish

Kirkus Reviews
2013-11-27
In the sweltering fall of 1876, a San Francisco prostitute tracks a killer and searches for her stolen baby. Donoghue returns here to the historical fiction genre in which she first made her international mark (Slammerkin, 2000, etc.), but she's blended in the suspense craft she acquired writing her contemporary mega-seller Room (2010). Who fired the shotgun blasts that blew away Jenny Bonnet while her friend Blanche bent down to take off her boots? Blanche believes it was her lover Arthur or his sidekick, Ernest, who have been living on her earnings as a high-priced erotic dancer/whore. They weren't happy when Jenny goaded Blanche into retrieving her 1-year-old son, P'tit, from the ghastly holding pen for unwanted children where Arthur dumped him while Blanche was ill. And Jenny is killed while Blanche is hiding out in the countryside with her after an ugly scene with Arthur and Ernest that led Blanche to flee their apartment without P'tit. The men blame Jenny for Blanche's newfound, unwelcome independence, but there are plenty of other people in San Francisco who dislike the defiant, cross-dressing frog-catcher, who presents herself as an untamed free spirit. There's far more to Jenny's story, we learn, as Donoghue cuts between Blanche's hunt for her son in mid-September and the events of August, when her collision with bicycle-riding Jenny led to their unlikely friendship. By the time the murderer is revealed, we understand why Jenny knows so much about abandoned children, and we've seen how Blanche has been changed by her hesitant commitment to motherhood. (Some of the book's funniest, most touching moments depict her early struggles to care for "this terrible visitor," her baby.) Donoghue's vivid rendering of Gilded Age San Francisco is notable for her atmospheric use of popular songs and slang in Blanche's native French, but the book's emotional punch comes from its portrait of a woman growing into self-respect as she takes responsibility for the infant life she's created. More fine work from one of popular fiction's most talented practitioners.

    Frog-catcher Jenny Bonnet, an unorthodox young woman often jaile

    Frog-catcher Jenny Bonnet, an unorthodox young woman often jailed for wearing men's clothing, is shot dead one evening, the bullet narrowly missing her friend Blanche Beunon, a former circus horseback rider turned exotic dancer. In her new novel Frog Music, Emma Donoghue takes this actual unsolved murder from the intense heat wave and smallpox epidemic of 1876 San Francisco and creates a powerful look into the lives of the city's outcasts.

    There's so much inside this story that gives a clear picture of societal attitudes and norms of the time, including matters tucked away out of sight, out of mind. The latter being, without giving anything away, one of the most appalling and heart-wrenching things I've read about in a long time.

    Frog Music is altogether exciting, suspenseful, tragic, unsavory, and scandalous. Its characters are gritty and flawed in all the best ways. Donoghue writes in a naturally beautiful style, interspersing smatterings of French throughout (there's a glossary in the back of the book), but the pace is quick, which kept me turning page after page.

    There is so much more I want to say, but I'm holding back because those things caught me by surprise as I was reading. Let's just say, I think this book would give reading groups a wealth of topics to discuss.

    As a musician, I was especially thrilled to find Song Notes in the appendix of the book, filled with background information about the music that appears throughout the story.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    Story not very compelling. Not fond of the author's writing style in this story. Seems disjointed as the narrative jumps back and forth in time.

    Reviewed by Rich Follett for Readers' Favorite Emma Donoghue¿s

    Reviewed by Rich Follett for Readers' Favorite

    Emma Donoghue’s Frog Music is as raucous and ebullient as its title implies. The cast of characters is a hardscrabble, resilient and eccentric never-say-die cast including Blanche, a French dance hall girl not entirely above selling her favors, a cross-dressing frog catcher named Jenny (hence, the amphibious title), a prematurely retired peacock shyster aerialist and his sycophantic partner in crime - all struggling to survive in smallpox-ridden San Francisco in 1876. When Jenny the frog catcher is murdered only inches away with buckshot that may have been intended for Blanche, a cat-and-mouse drama unfolds as Blanche tries both to solve the mystery and rescue Petit, her infant son who has been kidnapped as surety against her truthful testimony in court. The reversals in Frog Music are relentless and darkly fascinating. As read by Khristine Hvam, Emma Donaghue’s portentous, serpentine third-person narrative has the feel of a turn-of-the-century penny dreadful or a ‘read-all-about-it’ headline - exactly the kind of ‘can’t-look-away’ allure that causes good people to rubberneck at the scene of a car crash.

    Frog Music is a rare treat in that it is truly divergent from the vast majority of popular fiction. The characters are wickedly eccentric, complex, and drawn in the most fascinating strokes imaginable. The narrative is uncompromising and compelling. The tension is ratcheted up in unexpected ways that border on the perverse. Emma Donoghue’s Frog Music demands that we look head-on at things and people that we would normally view only in sidelong glances. As a result, it is an unforgettable and eminently worthwhile read.

    When I read the summary of the book I thought it looked very interesting. However, I found the story very difficult to follow. The author jumped from one thing to anothr. It was very difficult to follow and I had to go back each time to figure out who was who. It begins with the main character meeting a young women. From there the story becomes very disjointed. And the smattering of French was distracting and I know French. I finished the book because I kept on thinking it would get better. Would not recommend. Very disappointing.

    While I loved Donoghue's powerful 'Slammerkin' - well-researched

    While I loved Donoghue's powerful 'Slammerkin' - well-researched, soulful and moving, I have found Frog Music to be an agitating read, perhaps because of the 'then and now' chapters, perhaps because dense description jarrs against light character development.

    The thought occured to me that famous writers sometimes take out-of-the-box writing risks that work, but after 50 plus pages, I have turned to another riveting read of the same time period and also in the U.S.: Valerie Boyd's 'Wrapped In Rainbows', a biography of Zora Neale Hurston.

    I felt like I was there, but...

    I have always been very interested in reading about the California Gold Rush. I believe that in this book, we are given an up close perspective of what life and the people were like in San Francisco back then. Just about everyone in the book is rather unlikable. "Blanche" is a selfish and self-centered "soiled.dove" who does what she does not entirely for the money. She is enjoys the power, the attention and the gratification of being a prostitute. I doubt if she loved her baby, P'tit. She wanted him with her because she felt he belonged to her, not because she could give him a better life.
    Blanche and Jenny were "friends" and Blanche pushed the friendship into intimacy which, being straight, turned me off. How you live is how you live, but I do not care to read about gay sex and for that reason will pass on any more of Ms. Donahue's books.

    I know not all books can live up to the hype that is thrown upon

    I know not all books can live up to the hype that is thrown upon them by advanced book reviews but I was quite disappointed in
    Emma Donoghue's Frog Music for I was hoping it was going to be as good as everyone said it was. But it wasn't! My eyes felt heavy
    and my brain numb as I tried to read through some of the nauseatingly long paragraphs so I started skimming the pages reading only
    what seemed important because the only thing that really kept me plugging away at it was because I wanted to find out who really did it.
    I normally love literary novels but this one was as limp as a dead frog.

    An adult book, not because adolescents wouldn't understand it literally but because it is a little raunchy and nonsequential in its construction for no apparent reason.

    This book was so boring after about the first 25 pages I just couldn't stand reading any more of it. To submit a review I guess you must rate things at least one star, but in my opinion this book should get none.
