The dazzling new novel from bestselling, award-winning author Maggie O'Farrell, THIS MUST BE THE PLACE crosses time zones and continents to reveal an extraordinary portrait of a marriage. 'Inventive, moving and hilarious. I loved it' Rachel Joyce 'Destined to be one of the most acclaimed books of 2016' Hannah Beckerman 'Magnificent...perceptive, profound and page turning' Cathy Rentzenbrink Meet Daniel Sullivan, a man with a complicated life. A New Yorker living in the wilds of Ireland, he has children he never sees in California, a father he loathes in Brooklyn and a wife, Claudette, who is a reclusive ex-film star given to shooting at anyone who ventures up their driveway. He is also about to find out something about a woman he lost touch with twenty years ago, and this discovery will send him off-course, far away from wife and home. Will his love for Claudette be enough to bring him back? Maggie O'Farrell's seventh novel is a dazzling, intimate epic about who we leave behind and who we become as we search for our place in the world.

"Stylistically, narratively and emotionally, This Must Be The Place is a tour de force, a complex and nuanced story leaping effortlessly across multiple characters, continents and time frames... Both technichally dazzling and deeply moving… it is her best novel to date." - Observer
 
"In this rewarding and humane novel, O’Farrell brings alive the destructive effects of petty betrayals that affect everyone every day." - Daily Express

“…A symphony of stories and voices… absolutely gripping” – The Sunday Times
