“Sara Banerji’s view of the world is completely original and vivid… she is always worth reading”

Philip Pullman


Sara Banerji is the author of thirteen aclaimed novels. Her stories are peopled with vivid characters, whose lives are shot through with magic as well as very real human emotions. They are recounted with a dark humour that can all too easily tip over into horror. Critics describe her voice as ‘original and highly imaginative’, ‘gripping, fluid and confident’.


As well as an author, Sara Banerji is also an acomplished artist. She experiments with media ranging from oils and acrylics to glittering wrapping paper collages.


Sara’s dramatic and emotive sculptures are made from waste paper and wire. She has created several original and commissioned pieces.


Sara teaches creative writing classes every Tuesday in Oxford.

What Critics Are Saying About Sara Banerji

“Banerji has a wonderful prose style – her writing is fluid and confident and extremely imaginative. She knows how to meld shimmering prose with rollicking, high-powered adventure…”

Sunday Business Post

“Sara Banerji is one of the most entertaining and original novelists now writing and readers who have not yet entered the remarkable worlds of her stories should do so at once.”

Sunday Times

“Banerji’s prose verges on the whimsical side of fantasy and startles us with its insights into love and rejection.” 

Evening Standard

“Sara Banerji is a very gifted storyteller, a natural writer of great warmth and directness.”
