Résumé

@2@@20@'If @18@The Girl on the Train@19@ was the woman of 2015, then Sophie Stark is this year's model. Anna North's novel, @18@The Life and Death of Sophie Stark@19@, has been a hit in America, with Lena Dunham describing its protagonist as a "totally unforgettable female antihero". Out now - soon every girl on every train will be reading it' @18@Sunday Times@19@@21@@3@@2@Who is the real Sophie Stark? @16@@18@@19@@16@@18@The Life and Death of Sophie Stark@19@ 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 an actress who knows too much. @3@@2@With shades of @18@We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves@19@, @18@A Visit from the Goon Squad@19@ and @18@Where'd You Go, Bernadette@19@, it combines a uniquely appealing sensibility with a compulsively page-turning plot.@3@@2@@20@'Thriller-paced, with mysteries revealed at every turn. The great mystery at the centre is Sophie Stark, a totally unforgettable female anti-hero who conforms to absolutely none of our expectations and suffers deeply for it@18@' @19@Lena Dunham@21@@16@@20@@21@@16@@20@'North is a natural, butter-smooth storyteller' Maggie Shipstead, author of SEATING ARRANGEMENTS@21@@16@@20@@21@@16@@20@'I read THE LIFE AND DEATH OF SOPHIE STARK with my heart in my mouth. Not only a dissection of genius and the havoc it can wreak, but also a thunderously good story' Emma Donoghue, author of ROME@21@@16@@20@@21@@16@@20@'Jennifer Egan, eat your heart out' Sam Baker@21@@16@@20@@21@@16@@20@'A captivating portrait of the artist as a young woman. It's a story that examines the notion of artistic legacy and meditates on the ethics involved in film-making and storytelling' THE INDEPENDENT@21@@16@@20@@21@@16@@20@'Gripping and graceful' THE GUARDIAN@21@@16@@20@@21@@16@@20@'The year's must read' GLAMOUR@21@@3@
