“While researching my novel that is set in 1918, I kept discovering newspaper articles that I thought would make great stories. It turns out that Emma Donoghue must have had a similar notion. Her new collection of stories, Astray, are based on old newspaper articles about people who for one reason or another are on the run. With a breadth of voices she makes history and characters come to life. At the end of each story, she provides a summary of the article from which she got idea. I love this collection.”

Michael Morris, author of Man in the Blue Moon
