Call it a prison or call it a sanctuary; the eleven-by-eleven room that five-year-old Jack and his mother occupy serves as the center and the essential question of Emma Donoghue's Room, now published in a Libros edition. Told entirely through the words of the child, this enigmatic fiction presents a world of Beckettian simplicity that casts a laser-like precision on every aspect of its human situation. It is not surprising that the original version of this novel has become a subject of wide discussion on our website and elsewhere. Editor's recommendation.
