'Dreaming of Rose: A Biographer's Journal' is a fascinating account of a biographical quest and of a personal journey. While working on her biography of the writer and traveller Rose Macaulay, Sarah LeFanu kept a journal that charts the details of that quest: the people she met, the places she visited, and her strange dreamworld encounters with the very subject of her biographical pursuit.

For many years Sarah LeFanu was Senior Editor at The Women's Press, and was responsible for their innovative and highly-regarded science fiction list. She has written widely on feminism and science fiction, including introductions to a number of scholarly editions of the works of Joanna Russ ('The Female Man', 'The Two of Them', 'To Write Like a Woman'). Sarah has also edited a range of anthologies of contemporary fiction and science fiction, including 'Despatches from the Frontiers of the Female Mind' (with Jen Green), 'Letters from Home', 'How Maxine Loved Her Legs and Other Tales of Growing-Up', and (with Stephen Hayward) 'Colours of a New Day: Writing for South Africa'. She is the biographer of Rose Macaulay ('Rose Macaulay' and 'Dreaming of Rose: A Biographer's Journal' will soon be available from SilverWood Books) and, most recently, of Samora Machel ('S is for Samora: A Lexical Biography of Samora Machel and the Mozambican Dream', Hurst & Co, 2012). 'In the Chinks of the World Machine: Feminism and Science Fiction' (eBook available from SilverWood Books) won the prestigious MLA Emily Toth Award. Sarah's short stories have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4, along with two radio plays, Thin Woman in a Morris Minor and Death Bredon. She works regularly on abridgments and dramatizations for the BBC programmes Book of the Week, Book at Bedtime and Woman's Hour. From 2004 to 2009 Sarah was Artistic Director of the Bath Literature Festival. She continues to chair events for the LitFest on a regular basis, and also for the Bristol Festival of Ideas.
