    Drawing on Maggie O'Farrell's long-term fascination with the little-known story behind Shakespeare's most enigmatic play, Hamnet is a luminous portrait of a marriage, at its heart the loss of a beloved child. Warwickshire in the 1580s. Agnes is a woman as feared as she is sought after for her unusual gifts. She settles with her husband in Henley street, Stratford, and has three children: a daughter, Susanna, and then twins, Hamnet and Judith. The boy, Hamnet, dies in 1596, aged eleven. Four years or so later, the husband writes a play called Hamlet.

    Après le succès d'"Assez de bleu dans le ciel", Maggie O'Farrell revient avec un nouveau tour de force littéraire. Poétique, subtile, intense, une œuvre à part qui nous parle tout à la fois de féminisme, de maternité, de violence, de peur et d'amour, portée par une construction vertigineuse. Une romancière à l'apogée de son talent. Il y a ce cou, qui a manqué être étranglé par un violeur en Écosse. Il y a ces poumons, qui ont cessé leur œuvre quelques instants dans l'eau glacée. Il y a ce ventre, meurtri par les traumatismes de l'accouchement.

    17 Berührungen mit dem Tod. An den unterschiedlichsten Orten, zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten lenkte der Tod Maggie O'Farrells Leben: Als sie im Alter von 8 Jahren beinah an einer unbekannten Virusinfektion starb. Als sie mit 15 aus Übermut und Freiheitsdrang einen törichten Fehler beging. Oder als sie bei der Geburt ihres ersten Kindes fast gestorben wäre. Maggie O'Farrells autobiographische Geschichte, die sie ursprünglich für ihre kranke Tochter erzählt hat, vermittelt das Gefühl, dass jeder Herzschlag zählt. "Fast gestorben zu sein ist nichts Einmaliges oder Besonderes. Der Tod begegnet uns ständig; wohl jeder war ihm schon einmal nahe, vielleicht ohne es zu merken."

    A reclusive ex-film star living in the wilds of Ireland, Claudette Wells is a woman whose first instinct, when a stranger approaches her home, is to reach for her shotgun. Why is she so fiercely protective of her family, and what made her walk out of her cinematic career when she had the whole world at her feet? Her husband, Daniel, reeling from a discovery about a woman he last saw 20 years ago, is about to make an exit of his own. It is a journey that will send him off-course, far away from the life he and Claudette have made together. Will their love for one another be enough to bring Daniel back home?

    On a cold February afternoon, Stella catches sight of a man she hasn't seen for many years, but instantly recognises. Or thinks she does. At the same moment on the other side of the globe, in the middle of a crowd of Chinese New Year revellers, Jake realises that things are becoming dangerous. They know nothing of one another's existence, but both Stella and Jake flee their lives: Jake in search of a place so remote it doesn't appear on any map, and Stella for a destination in Scotland, the significance of which only her sister, Nina, will understand.

    Maggie O'Farrell's second novel is an intense, unnerving and passionate story of betrayal, loss and love, with all the frisson and psychological intensity of 'Rebecca'. When Lily moves into Marcus's flat and plunges headlong into a relationship, she must contend not merely with the disapproval of flatmate Aidan, but with a more intangible, hostile presence. Could it be that Sinead, Marcus's ex, is trying to communicate with her?
