2010 Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize

by D - Wednesday, Nov 03, 2010 at 9:26am

Emma Donoghue has won the 2010 Roger's Writer's Trust Fiction Prize for her novel Room. Room is an emotionally powerful story of five-year-old Jack and his mother, who has been held captive in an eleven-by-eleven room for seven years. To Jack, Room is all that is real, but when he turns five he starts to ask questions, and his mother reveals to him that there is a world outside. Told entirely in the inventive, often funny voice of young Jack, this is not a horror story or tearjerker, but a celebration of resilience and the love between parent and child.
