Synopsis

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.



Longlisted for The Wellcome Book Prize



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 Times bestselling 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.

Customer Reviews

I gave this to my grandparents as a present. They gave rave reviews and so I decided to give it a go too. It was a real page turner which left one contemplating one's own existence.

Maggie O’Farrell’s daughter suffers from severe anaphylaxis. This memoir was written by O’Farrell with the underlying desire to acknowledge her daughter is not unique, we all face potential death in our lives. She recounts her own 16 near death experiences; her 17th recounts a close incident of her daughter’s. I read that final chapter under the bed covers barely able to breathe myself.
