Buy This Book: Room by Emma Donoghue

Okay, this may be a premature recommendation because I haven't actually read it yet, but I think it's a safe bet. I love Emma Donoghue's writing in general, and her forthcoming novel is getting ridiculous buzz, including a spot on the Man Booker short list. Anita Shreve says, "I loved Room. Such incredible imagination, and dazzling use of language. And with all this, an entirely credible, endearing little boy. It's unlike anything I've ever read before." According to PW, it's "powerful...breathtaking suspense..."

I'd definitely nominate it for Most Chilling High Concept Ever:
Jack is five.
He lives in a single room with his Ma.
The room is locked.
Neither Jack nor Ma have a key.
As nightly visits and other creepy behavior from their captor, "Old Nick", become increasingly scary, Ma plans a daring escape into the terrifying reality of an outside world Jack has never seen.
