From Nine To Noon, 10:09 am on 13 September 2017

British author Maggie O'Farrell's latest book draws on her brushes with death across the decades. Her memoir, I am, I am, I am, chronicles some hairy experiences, and near misses, that she and a close family member have been through. This includes life threatening disease in her childhood, a close encounter with a killer and mismanaged labour in an understaffed hospital.
