Summary
"Critically-acclaimed Sunday Times bestseller and winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction, Maggie O'Farrell is one of the most successful British-Irish authors writing today. Covering her nine novels, her memoir I Am, I Am, I Am, and two children's books, Maggie O'Farrell: Contemporary Critical Perspectives is the first full-length study of O'Farrell's work, offering critical explorations from her earliest works to the award-winning Hamnet and most recent best-selling novel, The Marriage Portrait. Exploring themes such as grief and sacrifice, longing and belonging, trauma, translation, palimpsestic texts and the relation of her work to history and the female domestic gothic, this book also features a new and exclusive interview with O'Farrell herself, a timeline of her life and works, and suggested further reading"-- Provided by publisher.
