More About Sophie’s Current Project

Le Miroir des Possibles (The Mirror of Possibilities), a work-in-progress.

– “What do you do?”
– “Me? I am a famous Belgian princess!

Everyone in Los Angeles inevitably asks “What do you do?” How do you answer THE annoying question? Finding the answer is Sophie Radermecker’s quest in her upcoming book The Mirror of Possibilities.

In the vein of Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert or Wild by Cheryl Strayed, the Belgian author offers an inspirational memoir that embarks the reader on the protagonist Elisa’s journey from Brussels to LA. Through deaths and losses, betrayals and passion, synchronicities and encounters, the thirty-year-old ends up homeless in the City of Angels. What to do, then? Will the unavoidable question help her find her way back home? Through an exploration of the worst, the (anti)heroine becomes the opener of unexpected doors, determined to find a way to live with her wounds and to keep dancing through life, daring to let herself be tempted–and all the while the reader will be asking, “How far will she go?”
