Product description

Review

Bold and enthrallingBuzzfeed

It's a completely compelling read that asks whether broken hearts and ruined relationships are prices worth paying in the name of creativity. ― SUNDAY EXPRESS

Hotly tipped Brooklyn-based author and New York Times journalist Anna North has been making waves in the US with this book, with the likes of Lena Dunham among its fans. It's the story of idiosyncratic documentary filmmaker Sophie Stark, told at thriller-pace by six people who loved her most. ― BIG ISSUE

Anna North is a natural, butter-smooth storyteller, and The Life and Death of Sophie Stark is an elegant, kaleidoscopic look at a challenging artist and at the way our lives are, in some respects, only silhouettes made from the perceptions of those who know us. -- Maggie Shipstead, author of SEATING ARRANGEMENTS

For fans of A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD ― GRAZIA, THE BEST OF THE NEW BOOKS

The year's must read.GLAMOUR

Jennifer Egan, eat your heart out -- Sam Baker

Told from the perspective of six people whose lives were irrevocably shaped by Sophie Stark, the second novel from New York Times journalist Anna North is both a complex examination of the price of genius and an unputdownable page-turner. Jennifer Egan, look out. You have competition.THE POOL

THIS YEAR'S BLOCKBUSTER. If the Girl on the Train was the woman of 2015, then Sophie Stark is this year's model... Out now - soon every girl on every train will be reading it.SUNDAY TIMES STYLE

MAKING AN ENTRANCE: STUNNING DEBUTS FROM THE LITERARY WORLD'S NEW POWER PLAYERS: 'Memories of a powerful woman told by the six people who loved her most' ― Elle
