With winter now firmly behind us and the sun shining at long last, Team One Book Lane took to the roof terrace to celebrate the first day of spring – and what better way to celebrate this than with ice cream and a new book?
We wanted to tell you about a special book in particular that we’re publishing as an eBook Exclusive on 19th May – The Life and Death of Sophie Stark by Anna North.
The Life and Death of Sophie Stark is the story of an enigmatic film director, told by the six people who loved her most. Brilliant, infuriating, all-seeing and unknowable, Sophie Stark makes films said to be ‘more like life than life itself’. But her genius comes at a terrible cost: to her husband, to the brother she left behind, and to the actress she can’t quite forget. With shades of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, A Visit from the Goon Squad and Where’d You Go, Bernadette, it combines a uniquely appealing sensibility with a compulsively page-turning plot.
