When God was a Rabbit

by Sarah Winman

This whimsical novel is a story about family, friendship and the bond shared by a brother and sister. Crammed to bursting with incidents and observations, at times it reads like the diary of a precocious child. An undemanding book that deals with dark subjects in a light-hearted manner and one that will certainly divide opinion.


It often occurred to me that normal people never stayed with us, or if they did it was certainly for no longer than the one eye-opening night. My mother loved this seasonal swell to our family, the ebb and flow of familiar faces that brought new stories and new delights to our door, just as the stagnancy of the everyday settled there like stubborn mould. Our lives had become tidal; friendships, money, business, love; nothing ever stayed the same.
