Sarah Pinborough

Sarah Pinborough was born in 1972 in Buckinghamshire, and now lives just a few miles away after a childhood spent travelling all over the world (her father, now retired, was a diplomat). When she was eight she packed her trunk and left the Middle East for a ten-year stretch in boarding school. The memories provide her with much material for her horror and supernatural thrillers…

Friday ReRead: The Language of the Dying

This isn’t so much a Friday Read as a Friday ReRead.

A little while ago Ian Rankin was talking about novels and authors he’s recently discovered and mentioned Sarah Pinborough and The Language of Dying, saying ‘It’s about a father who’s dying; his grown-up kids get back together at the house to wait for him to die, but there’s all kinds of weird secrets and weird stuff happening, just on the periphery.
