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

'A brief, intense read...compulsive... seductive prose.' Lara Feigel, Guardian

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

It's all about Sarah, her mysterious beauty, Sarah the impetuous, Sarah the passionate, Sarah the sulphurous, it's all about the exact moment when the match flares, the exact moment when that piece of wood becomes fire, when the spark lights up the darkness.


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.

'There are shades of Duras, Nabokov, and Barthes in the intensely living heart of this magnificent novel.' L'Express

“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 !
