Leaving Sadie - A novel by S.J. Coules
Do you ever question the decisions you've made - how your life has turned out? Henry does. He questions a lot of things, be it his job, the plays he writes, his smoking habit, or - more importantly - his relationship with Sadie. When he decides it's time to address the latter and take action, things don't go exactly as planned.
He seeks refuge in his work (cue smoking), and in the company of the mercurial Oscar-winning actor Miller Moore, who's set to star in Henry's next play - if he's sober enough to put a coherent sentence together. But Henry's thoughts regularly return to Sadie, who's dealing with a family crisis and a potential job offer that could move her across the country, and out of Henry's life.
At times in our lives it seems like leaving is a always a possibility; a thought in the back of our minds, a word on the tip of our tongues. But leaving isn't an easy thing to do - for the one doing it, and the ones left behind.
The debut novel by screenwriter S.J. Coules (A Day Like Today, Bunny Rabbits), Leaving Sadie is a tale of love, family, friendship, the arts, and ambition in the tumultuous 21st century.

I understand that there’s talent. Well, most of the time—as Bob Dylan said. Other times . . . Well, I just don’t know. Like […]
