Summary
<b><i>"I Am I Am I Am&#xa0;</i>is a gripping and glorious investigation of death that leaves the reader feeling breathless, grateful, and fully alive. Maggie O’Farrell is a miracle in every sense. I will never forget this book."<br /><b>—Ann Patchett</b><br /><br />An extraordinary memoir—told entirely in near-death experiences—from one of Britain's best-selling novelists, for fans of <i>Wild</i>, <i>When Breath Becomes Air</i>, and <i>The Year of Magical Thinking</i>.</b><br /><br />We are never closer to life than when we brush up against the possibility of death.<br /><br /><i>I Am, I Am, I Am</i> is Maggie O'Farrell's astonishing memoir of the near-death experiences that have punctuated and defined her life. The childhood illness that left her bedridden for a year, which she was not expected to survive. A teenage yearning to escape that nearly ended in disaster. An encounter with a disturbed man on a remote path. And, most terrifying of all, an ongoing, daily struggle to protect her daughter--for whom this book was written--from a condition that leaves her unimaginably vulnerable to life's myriad dangers.<br />Seventeen discrete encounters with Maggie at different ages, in different locations, reveal a whole life in a series of tense, visceral snapshots. In taut prose that vibrates with electricity and restrained emotion, O'Farrell captures the perils running just beneath the surface, and illuminates the preciousness, beauty, and mysteries of life itself.
