About the Author

Sarah Winman grew up in Essex and now lives in London. She attended the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art and went on to act in theatre, film and television. She has written three novels, WHEN GOD WAS A RABBIT, A YEAR OF MARVELLOUS WAYS and TIN MAN.


What struck me was Winman's gorgeous imagery, beautiful passages and imaginative storytelling. Quirky and slightly hairbrained, A Year of Marvellous Ways is an unforgettable book * Mitford Society Summer Reads * The stories are touching and the twist of magical realism lends them a joyful, fairytale element * Daily Record * She is particularly good at bringing the sensations of landscape to bear - its smell, sound and look - and in Marvellous has created a character of warmth and eccentricity * Metro * A breathtaking reading experience... a beautiful book that is unafraid to reveal the ugliness of the world * Toronto Star * A truly enchanting book * Irish Times * A book to savour, to read in wonderful, rich little bits like dark chocolate. Winman's prose is poetry, with a rhythm, a heartbeat, that carries you through like music -- Emma Hooper, author of ETTA AND OTTO AND RUSSELL AND JAMES The sense of magic infused through the novel casts a spell over the reader that makes you not want to put the book down until you've turned the final page -- Hannah Beckerman, author of THE DEAD WIFE'S HANDBOOK The book demonstrates vividly how we need family around us, whether homegrown or grafted, to live our fullest lives... By the end of this novel, we too belong in the world of Marvellous Ways * Sunday Express, S Magazine * In this warm, kindly novel, the sea is both magical and healing. Lovely * The Times * A gripping waiting game ... The novel's surprising denouement is also well worth the wait * Observer * Yet again Sarah Winman has written a beautiful, beautiful novel. A Year of Marvellous Ways will hypnotise, seduce, until you can do nothing but pick it up and read it again -- Tiffany Murray, author of DIAMOND STAR HALO and SUGAR HALL A glorious poem of a novel - a story to read slowly and to marvel at the beauty of it -- Rosamund Lupton, author of SISTER A Year of Marvellous Ways is like Dylan Thomas given a sexy rewrite by Angela Carter -- Patrick Gale, author of A PLACE CALLED WINTER Moving... offbeat and memorable * Woman & Home * A lavish and clever read which will stand the test of time * Irish Examiner * One to read slowly so you can savour every beautiful sentence * Good Housekeeping (Book of the Month) * Beautifully written * Sun on Sunday, Fabulous Magazine * Winman excels in her sweeping prose and her unwavering theme of love in all its forms * Stylist * Fanciful imagery and beautiful prose that ebbs and flows * Independent *
