Nonemma Donohue, The Wonderer (Episode #612)

KQED World: Fri, Jan 13, 2017 -- 3:00 AM

Obedience to God? Mental deficiency? Medical anomaly? What is the reason behind a young girl's claim she no longer needs food. That is the premise in the novel "The Wonder." In this episode, best known for her book "Room," Emma Donoghue tells us why she wrote a book about a girl starving in remote Ireland; how she crafts a story told in small spaces; and, why she chose both a nurse and a nun to help unravel the mystery of a fasting girl. Mary Ann gives her recommendations for more Emma Donoghue to add to your reading list in Bookmarks.
