Published: 2/6/2018
We are never closer to life than when we brush up against the possibility of death. I Am, I Am, I Am 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.…

I heard about this unusual book on the radio the other day and the short description caught my interest enough to want to read it. O’Farrell has certainly had an unusual life and has found quite a unique way to tell her life story. I am not sure why she chose to tell the different stories out of chronological order, but it doesn’t distract too much from the story. The book is well-written and never goes into the “I feel sorry for myself” category, even though this woman certainly has overcome challenges many of us wouldn’t even dream of.
