She has worked at the Poetry Society and at the Independent on Sunday, where she was Deputy Literary Editor. Her debut novel, After You'd Gone, was published to international acclaim, and won a Betty Trask Award.Review:
Maggie O'Farrell brilliantly reveals how the past has an untidy habit of cluttering up the present in this compulsively readable tale of star-crossed lovers and secretive siblings * Elle * A well paced read that slowly and tantalisingly unravels a web of mysteries, tragedies and intrigue, keeping you hooked * Eve * Maggie O'Farrell has written three novels, each of them a critical and commercial success * FT * Every bit as good, if not better, than her highly acclaimed previous novels. An intriguing plot, sympathetic characterisation and beautifully observed, sophisticated writing all make for a hugely satisfying read * Booksellers' Choice *
