Or GETTING THE PICTURE at least.
I’m delighted that my novel is in the Amazon Kindle deal this month, currently edging up the bestselling charts for Ageing (No 6) and Personal Health (No 34). Although hopefully it’s a bit funnier and a bit more interesting that that sounds!
In the meantime, here are some reviews I treasure so much, I’ll bring them out again and again. I know you’ve seen them before, you’ll probably see them again too.. BUT HONESTLY… ONLY 99p!!
‘Getting The Picture astutely probes the quotidian eeriness of that other planet that is old age and a life recollected. Marvelous.’ William Gibson
‘The best novels seduce the reader, so allow the wonderful chorus of voices in Sarah Salway’s Getting The Picture to do just that. Let them whisper secrets, plans and mysteries; of the past, of the present. Let their possible futures come into focus for a celebratory final picture. This novel is uplifting, sinister and beautiful.’ Tiffany Murray
‘One of the smartest, wittiest writers of present times, and I recommend anything by her. Getting The Picture is just great. I couldn’t get through a page without smiling or laughing aloud… there is one photography session where an old man and woman meet with a camera between them that is riveting; Salway adds layers to it in the retelling, so that the poignancy of the event overtakes the humor. I can’t stop thinking about the state of mind of the 79 year old woman who lowers her shirt for the camera. All these old people still want to be seen, and to reveal themselves. Salway is a wonder at detail – small moments from all her books are permanently embedded in my mind. Don’t know how she does it, but it’s marvelous.’ Alice Elliott Dark
‘Sarah Salway is an astonishingly smart writer. Her fiction is always beautifully structured, touching and clever. She manages the trick of creating characters you care about in stories you admire. I can’t wait to see what she does next.’ Neil Gaiman.
