The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, This Must Be the Place and I Am, I Am, I Am have established Maggie O’Farrell as a writer of novels that weave past and present in sweeping narratives with powerful heroines. Her latest novel, Hamnet, was immensely popular in English and Dutch, and will soon be available in a French translation.
A literary phenomenon
Set in Warwickshire in the 1580s and inspired by O’Farrell’s fascination with the story behind one of Shakespeare’s most enigmatic plays, Hamnet is written from the point of view of Agnes, the playwright’s wife, who recounts the death of one of their children.
