It is 1876, and San Francisco, the freewheeling “Paris of the West,” is in the fierce grip of a record-breaking heat wave and a smallpox epidemic. Through the window of a railroad saloon, a young woman called Jenny Bonnet is shot dead.

 

In thrilling, cinematic style, Frog Music by Emma Donoghue, the international bestselling author of Room, digs up a long-forgotten, never-solved crime. Full of songs that migrated across the world, it is a lyrical tale of love and bloodshed. Like much of her acclaimed fiction, this larger-than-life story is based on real people and documents. 

 

Join us for a taste of the new book and an on-stage conversation with the National Post’s Mark Medley.
