Maggie O'Farrell

Listen to Maggie on Desert Island Discs

Not only an excellent writer, Maggie is also great to listen to. Several people alerted me to this edition of Desert Island Discs, and I’ve finally managed to listen to it! 

For some reason, I didn’t catch on to Maggie’s books as she started out ~ my acqaintance with her began with Instructions for a Heatwave, and my most recent read of hers was The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox. Both stunning! I loved Hamnet,in fact there hasn’t been one I’ve not been really impressed by, including her marvellous memoir, I am, I am, I am. Just two still to go, so I’m looking forward to ordering The Distance Between Us and My Mother’s Lover from the library today!
