THE SUNDAY TIMES NO. 1 BESTSELLER, AND BOOK OF THE YEAR IN THE SUNDAY TIMES, THE TIMES, GUARDIAN, IRISH TIMES, OBSERVER, RED and THE TELEGRAPH.

'O'Farrell takes up a bow and arrow and aims right at the human heart' The Times
'Absolutely, in every possible sense of the word, brilliant... spectacularly moving' Max Porter

I AM, I AM, I AM is a memoir with a difference - the unputdownable story of an extraordinary woman's life in near-death experiences. Insightful, inspirational, intelligent, it is a book to be read at a sitting, a story you finish newly conscious of life's fragility, determined to make every heartbeat count.

A childhood illness she was not expected to survive. A teenage yearning to escape that nearly ended in disaster. A terrifying encounter on a remote path. A mismanaged labour in an understaffed hospital. Shocking, electric, unforgettable, this is the extraordinary memoir from Costa Novel-Award winner and Sunday Timesbestselling author Maggie O'Farrell. It is a book to make you question yourself. What would you do if your life was in danger, and what would you stand to lose?

I AM, I AM, I AM will speak to readers who loved Cheryl Strayed's WILD or Max Porter's GRIEF IS THE THING WITH FEATHERS.

Review:

If you want evidence that life can be just as dramatic as fiction, you couldn't wish for better than Maggie O'Farrell's stunning memoir (Louise Doughty Guardian Books of the Year)

Maggie O'Farrell is a highly accomplished author with seven novels to her name but she achieves something altogether more powerful and direct in this astonishing memoir... Each chapter is an accomplished piece of memoir writing in its own right. The cumulative effect is extraordinary and I felt my understanding of what it means to be a human and a mother grew. Where other writers may be playing with paper, O'Farrell takes up a bow and arrow and aims right at the human heart (Cathy Rentzenbrink The Times)

I have never read a book about death that has made me feel so alive. A heart-stopping, addictive read (Tracy Chevalier)

I adored every minute. A triumph (Joanna Cannon)

Extraordinary. A beautiful testament to courage and grace under fire without an ounce of self-pity (Kate Mosse)

It is absolutely, in every possible sense of the word, brilliant. It shines with wit and candour and insight. It is spectacularly moving, funny, impeccably controlled, artful and sincere. It's a gift (Max Porter)

By turns chilling, terrifying, deeply moving, funny, recognisable, wild, simple, complicated. A rich celebration (Rachel Joyce)

Quite simply astonishing... reminds the reader of the fierce joy of being alive. To my mind, I AM, I AM, I AM is Maggie O'Farrell's greatest work to date (Louise O'Neill)

The final chapter is one of the boldest and most terrifying things I have read this year (Scotsman)

She is a breathtakingly good writer, and brings all her elegance and poise as a novelist to the story of her own life (Guardian)

Book Description:

An extraordinarily intimate memoir of the the brushes with death that have made Maggie O'Farrell the woman and the writer she is today, for readers of THE LAST ACT OF LOVE and WHEN BREATH BECOMES AIR.
