I Am, I Am, I Am: Seventeen Brushes With Death
My favourite book so far this year has to be Maggie O’Farrell’s ‘I Am, I Am, I Am: Seventeen Brushes With Death’.
This uncomfortable yet absolutely compelling memoir is a real page-turner, as thrilling as any work of fiction I have read. O’Farrell’s brushes with death include: a jump off a wall into the sea where she was trapped under water, a truly death-defying encounter with a man on a remote mountain path and a plane journey where passengers hit the ceiling as the plane hurtled towards the earth. An unconventional, astonishing memoir that leaves the reader grateful and lucky to be alive. Wonderful.
