Two Sarah Rayner novels out today!

Today I am celebrating the republication of my first two novels, The Other Half and Getting Even as ebooks by Picador.

Since the success of One Moment, One Morning, readers have been asking how they can get hold of these titles, and for a few years they were out of print so the only suggestion I could make was to hunt for second hand paperbacks online.

I'm therefore thrilled Picador UK are reissu... Read more of this blog post »

Sarah and 98 other people liked Michelle's review of Putney:
Putney by Sofka Zinovieff
"This book frustrated the hell out of me.

Which is EXACTLY what it was supposed to do.

The story follows the Greenslay family. It's the 1970's and let's just say their lifestyle is a bit bohemian. Barefoot and braless is the way of the household. G..." Read more of this review »

“She has no regrets; she knows now he could never have made her happy, even though he has, apparently, joined AA, is doing better. But sobriety is his journey, not hers; he needs to do it for himself, alone. Still, she misses him hugely, doesn't feel ready for another relationship yet. But as time passes, she hopes that she might be, eventually, with someone new, easier, kinder.”
Sarah Rayner, One Moment, One Morning

“That's the tragedy of falling in love; it brings with it the potential for loss.”
Sarah Rayner, One Moment, One Morning
tags: loss, love

“What Karen wants to do - needs to do - is cry, but she can't. Here, alone, when she could howl, beat the sofa cushions, scream; now, somehow, she is unable. It's for fear that if she gives in to it, she'll lose all sense of who she is. She is afraid that if she falls apart in private, then she'll fall apart completely. That if she crumbles, like a house in an earthquake, she will disappear down some deep, dark crevasse, and never be able to pull herself out and put herself back together again.”

“Many people suffer from the fear of finding oneself alone, and so they don't find themselves at all.”
Rollo May, Man's Search for Himself

“Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, we're afraid!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, We will fall!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
And so they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.”
Guillaume Apollinaire
