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.
