LoveReading View on One Star Awake

Longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize 2018

A gorgeously expressive, intriguing, and compelling tale… it powered into my thoughts and turned them upside down. A woman in Paris dealing with memory loss, tells her own story during a Parisian summer. As the tale progresses thoughts, feelings, friendships splinter, shatter, like a glass mirror, then puddle together again to form a different reflection. I wasn’t sure what to expect before I started reading, I adored the first sentence and settled in for a fascinating read. Andrew Meehan writes beautifully, time feels somehow irrelevant as the story corkscrews into place. I bobbed along on the current, twisting through the pages, feeling a sense of energy, of knowing, yet at the same time incredible innocence. I smirked, scowled, winced, I pondered, I really felt the words. ‘One Star Awake’ is quite simply, a fabulous read, one question to ask, can you find yourself if you’re still lost? ~ Liz Robinson

One Star Awake Synopsis

A young woman comes to in the Paris restaurant in which she apparently works – she has survived some kind of trauma, but her memories haven’t. Something tells her there has been a reprieve. Yet when she crosses paths with a mysterious man called Eagleback, she becomes convinced that he holds the key to her identity. Over the course of a hot, sticky summer, she covertly pursues Eagleback while re-learning how to live. Then she must decide if she is ready to solve the emotional puzzle of her life so far.

One Star Awake is a stunningly inventive novel, a thrilling work of art – by turns heartbreaking and hilarious, witty and urgently poetic. This is a fractured fairy tale – a funny and touching testament to the highs and lows of self-discovery and love found in unlikely places.
