Summary

Summary

Sophie Stark begins her filmmaking career by creating a documentary about her obsession, Daniel, a college basketball star. But when she becomes too invasive, she finds herself the victim of a cruel retribution. The humiliation doesn't stop her. Visionary and unapologetic, Sophie begins to use stories from the lives of those around her to create movies, and as she gains critical recognition and acclaim, she risks betraying the one she loves most.
Told in a chorus of voices belonging to those who knew Sophie best, The Life and Death of Sophie Stark is an intimate portrait of an elusive woman whose monumental talent and relentless pursuit of truth reveal the cost of producing great art.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Norths engrossing second novel portrays with painful clarity the life of a flawed but highly talented artist. Library Journal Starred Review
“North’s engrossing second novel portrays with painful clarity the life of a flawed but highly talented artist.” Library Journal (starred review)
“As taut and artistically ambitious as its title character, North’s novel upends the trope of the lone, tortured genius, considering instead the deeply human consequences of one person’s uncompromising vision.” Booklist
“An engaging exploration of what it takes to make art and, more importantly, what it takes to love those who make it.” Kirkus Reviews
“A fierce, page-turning, exposé of a would-be/could-be bright star. ‘Friends,’ former flames, and critics paint a portrait of an elusive cult filmmaker and the bridges she burned along the way.” Marie Claire
