Scott McClanahan

The Sarah Book

The Sarah Book is Scott McClanahan’s continuation of the semi-autobiographical portrait he’s been writing over the years about his life in West Virginia. This one is his portrait of love. “Scott McClanahan’s The Sarah Book is a furious exhalation of love and hurt and hate and tenderness and anger. This is a chronicle of a couple coming together and breaking apart. There is courage in these pages because so much of what McClanahan details is ugly and desperate and raw–everything, food, drink, love, heartbreak, to excess. The writing is so intimate you want to reach into the book to save this man from himself but you can’t. That impossibility is what makes this book so memorable, so powerful.” –Roxane Gay
