An intoxicating and evocative novel about the all-consuming love affair between two women in Paris and the ruin it leaves in its wake.

'Captivating...intense...seductive' Guardian

A thirty-something teacher drifts through her life in Paris, raising a daughter on her own, lonely in spite of a new boyfriend. Then one night, at a friend's tepid New Year's Eve party, Sarah enters the scene like a tornado. A talented young violinist, she is loud, vivacious, appealingly unkempt in a world where everyone seems preoccupied with being 'just so'. It is the beginning of an intense relationship, tender and violent, that will upend both women's lives.

A literary sensation in France, All About Sarah perfectly captures the pull of a desire so strong that it blinds us to everything else.

'All About Sarah moves impressively from the chaos and noise of love, to silence and solitude, like a spun coin settling' Observer

“All About Sarah (Paperback) Pauline Delabroy-Allard (author), Adriana Hunter (translator)”

Both breathtaking and devastating, this book should come with a health warning - I couldn't put it down and it took me several days to recover !
