I Am, I Am, I Am
Seventeen Brushes With DeathBook - 2018
"I Am, I Am, I Am is Maggie O'Farrell's astonishing memoir of the near-death experiences that have punctuated her life. The childhood illness she was not expected to survive. A teenage yearning to escape that nearly ended in disaster. A terrifying encounter on a remote path. A mismanaged labor in an understaffed hospital. And, most terrifying of all, an ongoing, daily struggle to protect her daughter--for whom this book was written--from a medical condition that leaves her unimaginably vulnerable to myriad dangers. Her theme, which she presses forward with extraordinary delicacy and purpose, is that because nothing is given, every day is precious, every moment a gift."--Jacket flap.
