Costa Novel-Award winner Maggie O'Farrell's electric and shocking memoir of the near death experiences that have punctuated her life.
I Am, I Am, I Am is a book to make you question yourself: what would you do if your life was in danger? How would you react? And what would you stand to lose? It is a book you will finish newly conscious of your own vulnerability, and determined to make every heartbeat count. A heartfelt and tenaciously powerful condensation of what it means to be alive.
