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)

Some books are for lingering over. Every sentence Maggie O'Farrell writes is so perfectly formed that you want to wallow in it. As a writer, she's perceptive, warm and particularly good at the nuances of family relationships. In This Must Be The Place, she casts her sharp but humane eye on a marriage in trouble (Good Housekeeping)

Maggie O'Farrell's new novel is beautiful... [an] epic endeavour to build a portrait of a relationship in its whole, contrary and complex plurality... the reader is won over, and rapt (i Newspaper)

She has, throughout her career, shown a willingness to experiment with form that many commercially successful writers wouldn't dare to do, as well as a willingness to explore difficult subject matter... epic and intimate (Herald)

The result is dazzling, her most accomplished book yet (The National)

Her best so far... epic but intimate too (Glamour)

Exquisite... exceptionally accomplished and emotionally sophisticated'... 'O'Farrell is tremendously sure-footed at wrong-footing the reader (Scotsman)

A complex, riveting novel of love and hope that grips at the heart... It will leave you bereft and wanting more (Sunday Times)

One of the most enjoyable and satisfying books of the year (Daily Express)

Deftly blurring the lines between holiday read and literary fiction, it's bound for the bestseller lists (Stylist)

No character is wasted, no word misspent... The reach is dazzlingly epic, the tone addictively accessible. In awe. (Grazia)

Fans will not be disappointed (The Times)

O'Farrell's seventh novel is as captivating and as intricately written as her previous offerings (Closer)

In the final pages, however, we are allowed to slow right down, to savour the culmination of everything that has come before, and to remember just how gifted a storyteller O'Farrell truly is (Irish Independent)

A conjuror's sleight of hand... a deft and compelling chronicler of human relationships (Guardian)

This Must Be The Place is her best yet ... At the heart of this smart, structurally interesting but never over-clever novel is the story of a relationship ... If she was a man she'd be Man Booker-shortlisted, as it is she'll have to settle for just being brilliant (The Pool)

An utterly compelling story which loops between decades and the hearts of its characters with enormous warmth, wit and poignancy. (Isabel Costello)

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)

A tour de force, a complex and nuanced story leaping effortlessly across multiple characters and time frames... destined to be one of the most acclaimed books of 2016 (Hannah Beckerman, Author of The Dead Wife's Handbook)

Book Description

An addictive and unforgettable novel of a marriage in freefall, shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award.
