About the Book

Emma Donoghue, the celebrated author of Room, brings her considerable talents to the short-story genre with these two moving collections.

Touchy Subjects

A man finds God and finally wants to father a child—only his wife is now forty-three years old. A coach’s son discovers his sexuality on the football field. A roommate’s bizarre secret liberates a repressed young woman. From the unforeseen consequences of a polite social lie to the turmoil caused by a single hair on a woman’s chin, Donoghue dramatizes the seemingly small acts upon which our lives often turn.

Astray

Gold miner. Counterfeiter. Slave. Dishwasher. Prostitute. Attorney. Sculptor. Mercenary. Elephant. Corpse. The colourful, fascinating characters that roam the pages of Emma Donoghue’s stories have all gone astray. They cross other borders, too: those of race, law, sex and sanity. They travel for love or money, incognito or under duress.
