Event 181

Maggie O’Farrell talks to Cathy Rentzenbrink

I Am, I Am, I Am: Seventeen Brushes with Death

Virtual venue: Tata Tent

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 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? She talks to the author of A Manual for Heartache and The Last Act of Love.
