The Book of Sarah is missing from the bible, so artist Sarah
Lightman sets out to make her own: questioning religion, family,
motherhood and what it takes to be an artist in this quietly
subversive visual autobiography from NW3. The Jerusalem Bible,
Ellerdale Road, St Paul's Girls School and a baby monitor: books
and streets, buildings and objects ll this bildungsroman set in
Hampstead, North West London. Sarah Lightman has been drawing her
life since she was a 22-year-old undergraduate at The Slade School
of Art. The Book of Sarah traces her journey from modern Jewish
orthodoxy to a feminist Judaism, as she searches between the
complex layers of family and family history that she inherited and
inhabited. While the act of drawing came easily, the letting go of
past failures, attachments and expectations did not. It is these
that form the focus of Sarah's astonishingly beautiful pages, as we
bear witness to her making the world her own.
