Review

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

Grief and loss so finely written I could hardly bear to read it

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

Exquisite, immersive and compelling --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
