Jack and Ma: reviewing Room

Emma Donoghue's new book, Room, is full of wonderfully unique surroundings such as Wardrobe, Bed, Rug, Plant and Bathtub.  For five-year-old Jack, there is no more than one of anything, so articles got tossed out (imaginary)Window.


Greetings and salutations

I write to you from an incompassible mountain of words. Vistas of verissimilitude. Rivers of .. um, riverishness.

Well, OK, actually it's just my office. But the mountain of words is here, if you look at the overflow from the shelves behind me. No, really, there are shelves in there.
