Description
In these 14 tales about wanderers by the author of the Booker-nominated bestseller Room, a trainer coaxes his beloved elephant onto a ship carrying him to a life of fame; a mother searches for her baby girl, sent away on a train headed west; and a slave and his mistress plot a daring escape as the Civil War rages on. Spanning the centuries and set in such diverse locales as Revolutionary-era New Jersey, Victorian England, and the Yukon during the gold rush, each story is followed by Emma Donoghue's account of what inspired her to write the piece.

"Emma Donoghue is one of the great literary ventriloquists of our time. Her imagination is kaleidoscopic. She steps borders and boundaries with great ease and style. In her hands the centuries dissolve, and then they crystallize back again into powerful words on the page."óColum McCann
