The Book of Sarah, a visual autobiography by Sarah Lightman, will be published by Myriad Editions in 2015.
When I talked to Sarah, in April, about The Book of Sarah, I was trying to formulate my reaction to her title, wasn’t it—
‘Presumptuous.’ Sarah said.
Presumptuous, in a way, I thought, but also brave.
By giving her memoir a Biblical-style title, she is making a
statement. Is she not saying, my life, my ordinary life, in which I have
neither waged wars nor been involved in politics, is a life worth
recording? And also, the unregarded stories of women are worth recording
Like the lives of many women’s in the Bible, Sarah’s might go
uncharted. She is depicting, for the most part, everyday things that
another might consider too mundane to document.
