Kort biografi
Born in Dublin, Ireland, in October 1969, I am the youngest of eight children of Frances and Denis Donoghue (the literary critic). I attended Catholic convent schools in Dublin, apart from one eye-opening year in New York at the age of ten. In 1990 I earned a first-class honours BA in English and French from University College Dublin (unfortunately, without learning to actually speak French). I moved to England, and in 1997 received my PhD (on the concept of friendship between men and women in eighteenth-century English fiction) from the University of Cambridge. From the age of 23, I have earned my living as a writer, and have been lucky enough to never have an ‘honest job’ since I was sacked after a single summer month as a chambermaid. After years of commuting between England, Ireland, and Canada, in 1998 I settled in London, Ontario, where I live with Christine Roulston and our son Finn (12) and daughter Una (9).

Recensioner

En gripande bok berättad utifrån en 5 årings perspektiv som är född i fångenskap. Tyvärr så läser man ju om det lite då och då i nyhetsmedia. Det är skickligt gjort, välskrivet och gripande.

En pojke berättar om sitt liv i Rum med Mamma. Han ska fylla 5 år. I Rum har de bl a Bord, Garderob, etc. Mamma berättar för honom att inget som händer på TV är på riktigt.Det finns en man som då och då kommer och låser upp Rum. Pojken har lärt sig att när mannen kommer så ska pojken stänga in sig i Garderob och stanna där tills Mamma säger till.

Den här boken kan man bara inte sluta läsa när man väl börjat. Obehaget kryper på en när man inser var de är, och att se deras liv genom barnets ögon är en stor kontrast till deras egentliga situation.
I och med att författaren har låtit pojken berätta är språket lätt.

--------------------

A boy tells about his life in the room with Mom. He’s about to turn 5. In Room, they have Table, Wardrobe, etc. Mom tells him that nothing on TV is real. Occasionally a man comes (unbolts Room from the outside) to see Mom. The boy has learned that when the man comes, the boy is to hide in Wardrobe and stay there until Mom tells him to come out.

This book is impossible to stop reading once you’ve started. You start to feel unease when you realize where they are. To see their lives through the child's eyes is a great contrast to their actual situation.
