Astray by Emma Donoghue

The characters who roam across the pages of Donoghue’s short story collection have all gone astray.  They are emigrants, runaways, drifters, gold miners and counterfeiters, attorneys and slaves.  Inspired by various newspaper articles and stories from the last four centuries, these wanderings have profound echoes in the present.  “Splendid…. [An] original and compelling collection,” The Boston Globe .
