As far as anyone can tell, the young heroine of One Star Awake survived some kind of trauma but her memory didn't. On the day she came to, she was in the kitchen of Parisian restaurant chopping vegitidibbles like an absolute pro. She knows she is Irish because she pronounces oil as aisle-otherwise she has a defiant lack of curiosity about her own past. Her present is taken care of by her strident boss, Ségo, and her guileless American boyfriend, Lowell. One Good Friday morning she sees a familiar face in a queue in apâtisserie. She follows the man-whom she christens 'Eagleback'âacross Paris' 11th arrondissement and, over the course of a sticky summer, discovers what they know about each other. Her curiosity starts to grow and she begins to solve the emotional puzzle of how she came to be in Ségo's restaurant in the first place.

Suprising, moving and persistently witty, One Star Awakeis a novel that's simply impossible to put down.
