Sarah Perry

Here's everything published by this contributor on musicOMH.


Sarah Perry was born in Essex, the youngest of five daughters. Following an unsatisfying flirtation with the Civil Service, she returned to student life, and is now studying for a PhD in creative writing at Royal Holloway College. She has an inconstant heart and her favourites change weekly. At present, she adores Nick Cave, Tennessee Williams, Iris Murdoch, Hardy's poems, Rocky Balboa and Erik Satie, but this is unlikely to last. On her first date with her husband she saw Ian Holm's much-acclaimed King Lear, an unforgettable event which fostered her love of theatre. Her attention span is notoriously short, so her hobbies are too numerous to mention, though they include sewing, painting, playing the piano, growing stuff, and making awful jewellery that falls apart on the third day. The only thing she can do really well is make cakes and biscuits. Sarah has won the Spectator Magazine's Shiva Naipaul Memorial Prize for travel writing and was shortlisted for Vogue Magazine's Young Journalist of the Year award. Her short story Seraph was published early this year in Bedford Square 2, the anthology of the Royal Holloway's Creative Writing MA programme. She is writing her first novel and her blog is here.
