Title: The Woman Who Gave Birth to Rabbits
Author: Emma Donoghue
Call #: DON
This is a completely different side of Emma Donoghue than you might have experienced if you read Room. These are 17 stories, all based on reality, set in Great Britain or Ireland over a 700 year period. Donoghue weaves snippets of the lives of real people into beautifully written fiction. She captures the sights and sounds and smells of each era perfectly. If you like historical fiction but don’t want to take on a whole book, these stories are for you.
