“Sara Banerji’s view of the world is completely original and vivid… she is always worth reading” Philip Pullman Sara Banerji, author, sculptor, artist and creative writing teacher, is a well established figure in the literary world.

As well as writing her own work, she teaches creative writing (scroll down for details!) hosts writers’ discussion groups – and launched the highly successful monthly ‘SparkOxford‘ storytelling series.

Sara also exhibits her paintings and sculptures in Oxford and has regularly featured in Oxford’s Artsweeks.

A descendant of the same family as 18th century “father of the novel form”, Henry Fielding, Banerji’s voice is described by critics as ‘original and highly imaginative’ ‘entertaining’,’bold’, ‘punchy’, ‘exciting’, ‘gripping, fluid and confident’. She is widely acclaimed as ‘a very gifted storyteller’.



  •  January 27th 2015 Bloomsbury publish Sara’s latest novel, Tikkipala, “a hypnotic tale of  love and preservation at a time of fading empires. Meticulously and soulfully written, Banerji  takes the heart on a journey through mystical cultures and spiritual practices, to a world  where anything is possible if love is strong enough.” Find out more or download the book .  Read about Sara’s inspiration for the novel.
