And God Remembered Sarah

Paul Gravett: Your new Strip deals with your feelings about starting a family. I wondered if there is an extra level here, because, I believe, the original Sarah or Sarai, as Abraham’s wife, was portrayed as barren, though later in life she becomes the mother of Isaac?

Sarah Lightman: Yes, my life has many parallels with my namesake. The whole aspect of uncertainty in relation to parenthood is one of them.  My title for my strip published in ArtReview is And God remembered Sarah, from Genesis 21:1, where Sarah finds herself pregnant as God promised, even though she was old.
