Half Life


“Half Life is quite something. I just loved Sarah’s idea of what it means to be a ghost”

Tracy Chevalier, New York Times bestselling author


Half Life by Sarah Gray

A beautiful, thought-provoking collection of short stories about death, loss, ghosts and supernatural creatures.

Half Life is a triplet of supernatural stories which journey to worlds that linger between life and death. From a recently deceased woman who tries to live a better life as a ghost, to the brother of death. Fear, disappointment and loneliness permeate these worlds, forcing each character to face up to the dark side of human existence.

“Half Life is a brilliant story on so many levels. First and foremost the story can't fail to engage you. You know from the first paragraph that the central character is going to die and you immediately want to know how and why and what happened. It is extremely well written, in clear, strong tones and with a lack of sentimentality that makes the story of her illness even more compelling and powerful. Half Life should be compulsive reading. Not only will it make you grateful for the full life you have, but it might make you act like a person and not a moron next time you see someone who is in a wheelchair."
