The real-life inspirationbehind The Wonder

Emma Donoghues 2016 novel (opens in a new tab) was inspired by a real-life phenomenon known as the fasting girls. These were girls, reported across Europe, who claimed they didn''t need food to live well. Sarah Jacob, a 19th century Welsh 12-year-old who died of hunger and her parents were convicted of manslaughter.

In the mid-1990s, I was instantly intrigued by these cases, which resembled medieval saints starving as an act of penance and also modern anorexics, but weren''t exactly the same as either.

In many Western countries, from the sixteenth century through to the twentieth, these girls became celebrities by not eating. However, I never found one real case that rang me away, telling me this was the story I had to tell in a novel. Finally, I realized that if I was still so fascinated by the Fasting Girls, I should abandon my usual approach of constructing a historical novel based on a real case.
