Room, Paperback


With an introduction by John Boyne. Today I'm five. I was four last night going to sleep in Wardrobe, but when I wake up in Bed in the dark I'm changed to five, abracadabra.

Jack lives with his Ma in Room. Room has a single locked door and a skylight, and it measures ten feet by ten feet.

Jack loves watching TV but he knows that nothing he sees on the screen is truly real - only him, Ma and the things in Room.

Until the day Ma admits there is a world outside. Devastating yet uplifting, Room by Emma Donoghue is a luminous portrait of a boundless maternal love.

It has sold more than two million copies, was a number one bestseller and was shortlisted for the Man Booker and Orange prizes.

Few books have reached modern classic status so swiftly.
