Product description

Review

A tour de force, a complex and nuanced story leaping effortlessly across multiple time frames... THIS MUST BE THE PLACE is that rare literary beast, both technically dazzling and deeply moving. It has all the structural and temporal playfulness of a Kate Atkinson novel while retaining the hallmark emotional insight for which O'Farrell has become renowned. It is her best novel to date, a book that surely confirms her as one of the UK's most assured, accomplished and inventive storytellers ― Observer

A symphony of stories and voices... absolutely gripping... A rare talent to enthral... It will leave you bereft and wanting more ― Sunday Times

Inventive, moving and hilarious. I loved it -- Rachel Joyce

Beautifully executed; a graceful, insightful exploration of a relationship in all its wonders and woes ― Mail on Sunday

Switching seamlessly between decades, destinations and voices, it's complex in scale, but is carried off with dazzling grace. A rich, engrossing feast of a novel to lose yourself in ― Sunday Mirror

A magnificent novel that is perceptive, profound and page-turning in equal measures. There are few things I look forward to like a Maggie O'Farrell novel and she never disappoints -- Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of The Last Act of Love

There is tragedy in the novel, but also sharp comedy, and O'Farrell, skilful as ever, plays with the novel form... In this rewarding and humane novel, O'Farrell brings alive the destructive effects of petty betrayals that affect everyone every day ― Sunday Express

For all that it whizzed about across times zones and continents, it is seamless and each character is fantastic at the next ― Metro

A new Maggie O'Farrell book is always a cause for celebration, but her seventh is so brilliant that you'll want to unfurl flags and put up bunting in her honour... Wonderfully written and absolutely addictive ― Psychologies Magazine

I haven't read a Maggie O'Farrell novel I didn't love and This Must Be The Place might be her finest work yet... A beautiful, ambitious triumph ― Red Magazine

Review

Praise for Maggie O'Farrell: Here is an author whose depth and insight hover just below the surface of an apparently effortless lightness...There is a deliciousness to this novel, a warmth and readability that render it unputdownable and will surely make it a hit. She's done it again - Guardian

Addictive... told with real humanity, warmth and infectious love - Observer

Consolidates her reputation as a writer who depicts relationships with piercing acuity in haunting, intense prose. O'Farrell is a deliciously insightful writer, observing the dynamics of relationships and astutely filleting them to the bone. Her sharp but humane eye dissects every form of human interaction - Independent on Sunday

Evocative, articulate and joyously readable, does not disappoint. An author at the top of her game - Sunday Express
