The Nashville Library’s series Salon@615 has been lucky enough to snag Emma Donoghue.  Ms. Donoghue’s collection of short stories Astray is an astoundingly creative collection of short stories pulled from newspaper headlines between 1767-1967.  The stories focus on the traumas of family life and friendship, how those relationships appear on the outside and how that appearance is deceiving to the parties.  Different in theme, but not in topic from her best selling ROOM.  Ms. Donoghue is an insightful and thoughtful observer of the fundamental tragedy of human interactions. Catch her at the library if you can, and click here for TNR’s review of Astray .
