Sadie Jones's first novel, THE OUTCAST, was published to wide critical acclaim and won the Costa First Novel Award in Great Britain. It was also a finalist for the prestigious Orange Prize, as well as a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for First Fiction. A year later, she published her second novel, SMALL WARS, a tale of love, war, and honor, again to impressive critical praise. THE UNINVITED GUESTS is her brilliant third book, a complete departure from her earlier novels, and a small masterpiece. Sadie Jones lives in London.
