4 The Life and Death of Sophie Stark

4 The Life and Death of Sophie Stark by Anna North

Paperback £8.99

Staff Recommendation: This scope of this novel is greater than the title suggests. Sophie Stark is a socially awkward but gifted young filmmaker in New York who inspires love, curiosity, anger and bewilderment in her lovers, brother, film subjects and colleagues. Told in segments by those people, the novel delivers much more than it promises by plunging the reader into the lives and minds of this interesting group of individuals who each have their time close to Sophie, and are each changed by it. An absorbing, modern approach to a character to intensifies the lives of those around her.
