HarperPerennial | September 17, 2013 | 288 pages

The bestselling author of Room fashions a cast of colourful characters—who inhabit worlds as diverse as Puritan Massachusetts and 1960s Toronto—each on their own extraordinary journey Gold miner. Counterfeiter. Slave. Dishwasher. Prostitute. Attorney. Sculptor. Mercenary. Elephant. Corpse. The fascinating characters that roam across the pages of Emma Donoghue’s stories have all gone astray: they are emigrants, runaways, drifters, lovers oldand new. They cross other borders, too—those of race, law, sex and sanity. They travel for love or money, incognito or under duress. With rich detail, the celebrated author of Room takes us from Puritan Massachusetts to the Yukon gold rush, from antebellum Louisiana to a 1960s Toronto highway. Astray offers us a surprising and movinghistory for restless times.
