About: Sarah Rose

Sarah Rose Sarah Rose is a writer living in New York. She thinks that’s the greatest sentence she ever wrote. Since she’s already made it there, she’s trying to be a travel and food writer everywhere else. She wrote For All the Tea in China: How England Stole the World’s Favorite Drink and Changed History (Viking, buy it please?) and is a regular contributor to The Wall Street Journal. She’s a serious and important writer, extremely beautiful, single, has a smile that embarrasses the lights in Times Square, and is now The Saturday Evening Post’s dating columnist.
