Hamnet was a runaway bestseller before winning the Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2020. Unsurprisingly, Maggie O’Farrell’s latest novel is one of the most hotly-anticipated of 2022. Today, in conversation with Damian Barr, the Edinburgh-based writer launches The Marriage Portrait, a portrayal of the battle for survival by a captivating young duchess in 16th century Florence. Welcome to the irresistible world of Lucrezia de’ Medici.
