Read full description of the books:
"A compelling examination of love, loss and family ties... beautiful, assured, lyrical... complex, ambitious and clever." Journalist and academic Charlie Lee-Potter
A coming-of-middle-age tragicomedy in which our empty-nesting, partnerless, parentless, jobless but resolutely cheerful heroine has to confront the awful truth that life isn't always nice and being nice doesn't always work.
The family home has to be sold - a flat full of boxes, a garden choked with ivy. Contrary to her brother Will's advice, Georgina proposes to sort it all out by herself. She has underestimated the power of the past. Buried alone with 200 years' worth of accumulated stuff - letters, photographs, odds, sods and bits and bobs - she begins to lose touch with the present and her own world begins to unravel.
Set in the Bristol of nowish, and Stratford-upon-Avon during the summer of '76.

Read information about the authorWriter and performer based in Bristol.
Writer and performer Sarah Ménage was born and brought up in Stratford-on-Avon, with an older sister, an older brother, a younger brother and two younger sisters. She spent her twenties in London, where she studied Medicine for two years, and Drama for three, winning her Equity card on the alternative comedy circuit, before fleeing to Bath and eventually discovering the many marvellousnesses of Bristol. She has one grown-up son and lots of nephews and nieces.
The name Ménage (which means household) comes from great great grandfather John Baptiste (aka Gustave) who bigamously married English girl Naomi Starters in 1839. Since the marriage was illegal, the British Ménages ought really to be called Starters. On her mother's side great great great grandfather James Cathrow Disney, Somerset Herald and fantasist, believed himself to be a bastard son of George IV. The story has not been proved false. Sarah recently embraced her (Galway and Belfast) Irish ancestry and established her dual nationality; and displays her Irish passport with very little encouragement or excuse.
Sarah has also written two albums of songs, WHO NEEDS A MAN and IN A MOOD. Songs attached to the novels - Love In A Wet Climate, The Glass Girl, They Fuck You Up, How To Make Life Nice and Molly's Daughter - will be released with others on STRIPPED DOWN DITTIES. Even sooner they will be available as downloads from sarahmenage.com.
