Product description

Review

“Maggie O’Farrell is known for penning the most literary of fiction. And she does not disappoint with this stunning—though sorrowful—outing.” —The Toronto Star

"A thing of shimmering wonder." —David Mitchell

“The story of Hamnet Shakespeare has been waiting in the shadows for over four hundred years. Maggie O’Farrell brings it dazzlingly, devastatingly, into the light.” —Kamila Shamsie
 
“Stunning. The writing is exquisite, immersive and compelling . . . deserves to win prizes.” —Marian Keyes
 
“Heartstopping. [
Hamnet] does for the Shakespeare story what Jean Rhys did for Jane Eyre, inhabiting, enlarging and enriching it in ways that will alter the reader’s view for ever.” —Patrick Gale
 
“Grief and loss so finely written I could hardly bear to read it.” —Sarah Moss
