Sarah May is the highly acclaimed author of 7 novels, including The Nudist Colony (shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award and winner of the Amazon Bursary), Spanish City (shortlisted for the RSL Encore Award), The Internationals (longlisted for the Women’s Prize) and the best-selling Rise and Fall of the Queen of Suburbia.
