What to expect

From the Costa Award winning Maggie O’Farrell comes the Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller MY LOVER’S LOVER, an intense, unnerving and passionate story of betrayal, loss and love, with all the frisson and psychological intensity of Rebecca.

When Lily moves into Marcus’s flat and plunges headlong into a relationship, she must contend not merely with the disapproval of flatmate Aidan, but with a more intangible, hostile presence. Could it be that Sinead, Marcus’s ex, is trying to communicate with her? When Lily begins to ‘see’ Sinead, first about the flat, and then on the streets of London, she must question not merely her sanity, but whether the man she loves is someone she can, or indeed ought, to live with at all.

Critics Review

  • A quietly dramatic dissection of the way past loves can haunt the present

    The Daily Telegraph
  • This Rebecca-esque ghost story puts at its heart the gnawing insecurities that any act of intimacy soon invites

    The Independent
  • O’Farrell’s writing has a crystalline precision of idiom – there isn’t one image that fails to ignite recognition

    Independent on Sunday
  • O’Farrell has honourably equalled the success of her first novel, After You’d Gone, with a story that is certainly as absorbing – and just as beautifully written
