Sadler's Birthday



'A rather special work - a tour de force' Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times

Today is Jack Sadler's birthday. Or is it? He's not sure, he doesn't really care. It might be his last day or the beginning of a new chapter in his life. He must find the key to his old room. He knows the truth about his past lies there and somehow he must get in and confront it.

Praise for Sadler's Birthday

Sadler's Birthday is as far from the stereotype of a young woman's first novel as it can be. It is a masterly study of a lonely but loyal man that is deeply felt, intelligent and often touchingly funny. I liked it very much

Angus Wilson

A first novel of remarkable talent; never a foot set wrong

Financial Times

Brilliant... A quintessentially English writer - her work has a charm and finesse, a civilised irony

Guardian

This is a writer whose breadth of imagination and supple prose transcend the genre: she is one of the finest writers in English

Daily Telegraph

She is a magical storyteller - it is as an artist that she excels

New Statesman

Not many first novels combine imagination and discipline to this degree

The Listener
