Product description


"This poetic and mystifying debut draws blood." --New York Times Book Review

"Titillating with its frank descriptions of sex...and captivating with its investigation of the suffering involved in passion. It's a brief, intense read...alluring and disturbing." --The Guardian

"An intense affair between two women is brought to life...in [Delabroy-Allard's] enjoyable debut...a book that reads at times--this is high praise--like a new iteration of Jeanette Winterson's Written on the Body (absorbing passion, illness, separation) and that moves impressively from the chaos and noise of love, to silence and solitude, like a spun coin settling." --The Observer

"A whirlwind jaunt through two women's fast-moving love affair...the action unspools quickly through a blitz of sex, travel, and emotional turmoil, cascading to a point of no return...thrilling." --Publishers Weekly

"Already a huge hit in France, where it was nominated for the prestigious Prix Goncourt before it was even published, Delabroy-Allard's sulphurous autobiographical novel centers on a young, newly-single mother in Paris who embarks on a tempestuous relationship with a professional violinist." --OprahMag.com, LGBTQ Books That Are Changing the Literary Landscape in 2020

"A roman fleuve celebrating a lover with absinthe-green eyes...I am hooked." --Michèle Roberts, Times Literary Supplement

"A gasping, sensory-driven symphony of love and despair." --Booklist

"This slim, intense volume centers two women's obsessive desire for one another...Their tender yet dark affair leaves them--and readers--breathless." --Ms. Magazine

"A beautifully rendered and poetic portrait of obsessive love." --Farzana Doctor, author of Seven

"There are shades of Duras, Nabokov, and Barthes in the intensely living heart of this magnificent novel." --L'Express

"Masterful and musical." --L'Humanité

"Dizzying...The intense They Say Sarah has two times, two rhythms, but a uniform narrative and stylistic mastery." --Le Figaro
