Editorial Reviews

In this episode of Symphony Space’s Thalia Book Club, best-selling author Michael Cunningham hosts an insightful and thought-provoking conversation with Emma Donoghue, author of the award-winning and much-acclaimed 2010 novel Room, which tells the story of a young boy and his mother being held together in captivity.
Cunningham is a sharp and funny interviewer, and his conversation with Donoghue is both illuminating and entertaining. Donoghue is open and extremely forthcoming, sharing insights into the process of her novel’s construction, and engaging in a lively dialogue with Cunningham about her authorial intentions. A must-listen for fans of Donoghue’s spellbinding book!

Be careful when clicking on this product!! I thought that I was getting the audio book but got some sort of commentary/discussion instead. I wasted my money and don't even have the book to listen to ;0( So disappointed!!!

Great Discussion

I must admit that I thought I was purchasing the actual book and was rather perturbed that it was a book discussion. Clearly, I was rushing and didn't read the details. My bad.

Coming from a position of disgust to thoroughly enjoying this book discussion is indicative of how great the presenters were. I am excited to purchase the actual book to read. And, I will have far more insight and understanding of what I'm listening to.

HIGHLY recommend this discussion either before or after you read the book, "Room."
