Maggie O’Farrell: The Marriage Portrait

MWF Digital 

Set among the palazzos of Renaissance Florence, The Marriage Portrait is the keenly awaited novel by bestselling British-Irish author Maggie O’Farrell. Centring on a captivating young duchess against a backdrop of political intrigue and ambition, it brims with the verve and drama that illuminated the Shakespearean canvas of her Women’s Prize-winning Hamnet, praised by David Mitchell as ‘a thing of shimmering wonder’. O’Farrell introduces her forthcoming work to readers in conversation with Sophie Black.

Online | Available on demand from 8 September
