Ep 451 - Hamnet, by Maggie O'Farrell

12/28/2020

"There's rosemary, that's for remembrance. Pray you, love, remember."

Maggie O'Farrell's prize-winning novel Hamnet is one of remembrance -- a work of historical fiction about guilt, loss, and the people who live in the margins of a Great Author's biography. Come to marvel at how skillfully O'Farrell shunts William Shakespeare off-stage, stick around for the randy apple storage scene.
