Emma Donoghue’s latest, Frog Music, received a starred review in Booklist. And 2010’s Room was a blockbuster. Don’t forget to steer patrons to her 2001 gutsy historical, Slammerkin. It’s the story of a young English girl in the 1760s who falls into a life of prostitution and lies–which reminded me quite a bit of Moll Flanders. Based on a true crime, this book is very engrossing and entertaining. Although different in time period and scope, this would be a great readalike for Michael Faber’s Crimson Petal and the White (set in Victorian times and more of an epic saga, but shares similar themes).
