Sara Baume

Sara Baume

Sara Baume lives on the seafront in a village where everybody waves, in a house with yellow walls and numerous animal figurines, with a marvellously strange dog and a kind man. Her debut novel also features a man and a dog, but in entirely different circumstances. Born in Lancashire, Sara Baume grew up in County Cork where she still lives now. She won the 2014 Davy Byrnes Short Story Award for Solesearcher1 and her debut was described by the Irish Times as a ‘stunning and wonderful achievement by a writer touched by greatness’.
