Staff Reviews

My favorite thing about Emma Donoghue’s books are her characters. She’s written collections of short stories and many novels set in a wide range of eras and places, and no matter what the topic, her characters sing. This is particularly true of her historical fiction, which she infuses with exhaustive research. I blazed through Slammekrin in a day or two, and after I found I couldn’t get the protagonist’s voice out of my mind. Love her or hate her (…you might hate her), she will certainly spur heated discussion. This is a great summer read for fiction-loving book groups.

Inspired by a teenage girl who murdered her mistress in 1763 because she "longed for fine clothes", "Slammerkin" is the bestselling classic story of a lower-class Roxana, a female Tom Jones.
