Astray by Emma Donoghue
Astray: Book summary and reviews of Astray by Emma Donoghue
The fascinating characters that roam across the pages of Emma Donoghue's stories have all gone astray: they are emigrants, runaways, drifters, lovers old and new. They are gold miners and counterfeiters, attorneys and slaves. They cross other borders too: those of race, law, sex, and sanity. They travel for love or money, incognito or under duress.
"[T]he stories are vivid, curious, and honest...notable more for the historical moments they reconstruct than for the people who inhabit them." - Publishers Weekly
