‘Time and again, Emma Donoghue writes books that are unlike anything I have ever seen before, and Astray is no exception.’ Ann Patchett, author of State of Wonder
‘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.’ Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin
‘Superb . . . read this book. It is a gem.’ Sunday Times
‘Vivid and moving’ Good Housekeeping
