Radio 2 Book Club – Emma Donoghue’s Frog Music

Frog Music by Emma Donoghue

Frog Music by Emma Donoghue is the book of the week on Simon Mayo’s Drivetime Book Club on Monday 24th March and it looks really good

It’s the summer of 1876, and San Francisco is in the fierce grip of a record-breaking heatwave and a smallpox epidemic. Through the window of a railroad saloon, a young woman called Jenny Bonnet is shot dead. The survivor, her friend Blanche Beunon, is a French burlesque dancer. Over the next three days, she will risk everything to bring Jenny’s murderer to justice – if he doesn’t track her down first.

Emma Donoghue (click to find out what we’ve got in stock) is an Irish-born playwright, literary historian and novelist now living in Canada. Her 2010 novel Room was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize and an international best-seller.
