Lyhyt elämäkerta
Born in Dublin, Ireland, in October 1969, I am the youngest of eight children of Frances and Denis Donoghue (the literary critic). I attended Catholic convent schools in Dublin, apart from one eye-opening year in New York at the age of ten. In 1990 I earned a first-class honours BA in English and French from University College Dublin (unfortunately, without learning to actually speak French). I moved to England, and in 1997 received my PhD (on the concept of friendship between men and women in eighteenth-century English fiction) from the University of Cambridge. From the age of 23, I have earned my living as a writer, and have been lucky enough to never have an ‘honest job’ since I was sacked after a single summer month as a chambermaid. After years of commuting between England, Ireland, and Canada, in 1998 I settled in London, Ontario, where I live with Christine Roulston and our son Finn (12) and daughter Una (9).

Kirja-arvosteluja

Järkyttävä mutta kuitenkin positiivinen kuvaus pienestä pojasta, Jackista, joka elää äitinsä kanssa kidnapattuna pienessä kellarissa. Koko kirja on kerrottu lapsen näkökulmasta ja siinä on oivaltavia ilmaisuja asioille. Kirja kertoo myös sopeutumisesta aika pelottavallakin tavalla. Eli kun äidin ja pojan tilanne muuttuu vankeuden sijaan tulee vapauden tuomia vaikeuksia. Mielenkiintoinen tarina.

Koskettava tarina 5-vuotiaan Jackin kertomana. Jack on elänyt koko elämänsä 11 neliön huoneessa äitinsä kanssa, vankeudessa. Jackin äiti on siepattu ja vangittu 19-vuotiaana. Sieppaaja, "Vanha Kehno" vierailee säännöllisin väliajoin raiskaamassa Jackin äidin, joka suojelee poikaansa kaikin tavoin. Nerokkaan suunnitelman avulla vangit pakenevat, mutta elämä vapaudessa ei ole sekään helppoa. Lapsen näkökulma kuvaa tapahtumat kaunistelematta ja kauhistelematta.
