Review

Time and again, Emma Donoghue writes books that are unlike anything I have ever seen before. (Ann Patchett)

Frog Music is a roiling, simmering brew of a novel: dramatic, unexpected (Spectator)

This is another smart and finely wrought consideration of parenthood, further proof of Donoghue's significant skill as an author (Alex Preston Observer)

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)

Emma Donoghue follows her bestseller Room with Frog Music. Set during a smallpox epidemic in San Francisco in 1876 and based on a true story, a burlesque dancer sets out to bring her friend's murderer to justice. (Hot Books of 2014 Daily Express)

The novel is brilliant as historical fiction and crime thriller... it succeeds best when showing the everyday things that don't change with time (Independent on Sunday)

Donoghue flawlessly combines literary eloquence and vigorous plotting in her first full-fledged mystery, a work as original and multifaceted as its young murder victim . . . In language spiced with musical interludes and raunchy French slang, Donoghue brings to teeming life the nasty, naughty side of this ethnically diverse metropolis . . . Most of her seedy, damaged characters really lived, and she not only posits a clever solution to a historical crime that was never adequately solved but also crafts . . . an engrossing and suspenseful tale about moral growth, unlikely friendship, and breaking free from the past. (Booklist)

Lively, entertaining and well-written (Evening Standard)

More fine work from one of popular fiction's most talented practitioners . . . Donoghue's vivid rendering of Gilded Age San Francisco is notable for her atmospheric use of popular songs and slang in Blanche's native French, but the book's emotional punch comes from its portrait of a woman growing into self-respect as she takes responsibility for the infant life she's created. (Kirkus Reviews)

Swift and absorbing (Vogue)

Book Description
