Maggie O'Farrell

Chosen as one of Waterstones’ 25 Authors for the Future in 2007, Northern Irish author Maggie O’Farrell has gone on to become one of Britain’s most acclaimed and popular contemporary fiction writers.

O'Farrell paints as evocative a picture of Renaissance Italy as she did Shakespearean England in the former Waterstones Book of the Year Hamnet, as Cosimo de' Medici's third daughter learns to navigate an opaque Florentine court and an enigmatic new husband.
