From the New York Times bestselling author of Room, Emma Donoghue, Hood is a graceful tale of a young woman who must come to terms with love and loss in the wake of her partner’s sudden passing. The New York Times Book Review calls Hood “utterly charming,” writing that,“Ms. Donoghue displays her confidence by avoiding the grandiose and the showy, and dipping into the ordinary with control and the occasional sustaining descriptive flashes of a born writer.”

For readers of Jeanette Winterson’s Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and Joyce Carol Oates’s The Widow’s Story, Donoghue’s Hood is a masterfully crafted narrative of relationships and a daring, deft exploration of the love’s imperfection—and how it can nonetheless dominate our lives as we grow and change.
