Emma Donoghue is an Irish-born playwright, literary historian and novelist now living in Canada. Her novel "Hood" (1995) won the Stonewall Book Award and "Slammerkin" (2000) won the Ferro-Grumley Award for Lesbian Fiction. Her most recent collection of short stories, "Touchy Subjects" was published in 2006. Her latest novel, "Landing" (2007) portrays a long-distance relationship between a Canadian curator and an Irish flight attendant.

Emma Donoghue is considered one of the 'Four' - along with Jeanette Winterson, Sarah Waters and Ali Smith - of British/European-born lesbian writers who have been steadily energizing and creating mainstream interest in gay/lesbian literature.Fact|date=February 2007
