Our latest Book Trailer of the Week is this vaguely creepy clip for Emma Donoghue’s Room. Short-listed for the 2010 Man Booker Prize and also honored as a NY Times Notable Book, this outstanding novel is narrated by five-year-old Jack, a boy whose whole world is the 11-by-11-foot room in which his 19-year-old mother is being held captive. Room is riveting, suspenseful, and ultimately a moving story about “the triumph of a mother’s ferocious love.” So check it out, and now… roll film.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfpTad-lt-U&feature=related]
