Synopsis

Now a major Netflix film from the makers of Normal People and Room, starring Florence Pugh.

'An old-school page turner with crackling intensity' – Stephen King
'Powerful, compulsively readable' – The Irish Times

Eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell stops eating, but remains miraculously alive and well. A nurse, sent to investigate whether she is a fraud, meets a journalist hungry for a story . . .

Set in the Irish Midlands in the 1850s, Emma Donoghue's The Wonder – inspired by numerous European and North American cases of 'fasting girls' between the sixteenth century and the twentieth – is a psychological thriller about a child's murder threatening to happen in slow motion before our eyes.

Part of the Picador Collection, a series celebrating fifty years of Picador books and showcasing the best of modern literature.
