Booked Out would like to congratulate Sofie Laguna on the upcoming release of her new book, The Eye of the Sheep.
Sofie’s second novel for adults, The Eye of the Sheep is the story of Jimmy, and his family who are struggling to cope with a different and difficult child.
Ned was beside me, his messages running easily through him, with space between each one, coming through him like water. He was the go-between, going between the animal kingdom and this one. I watched the waves as they rolled and crashed towards us, one after another, never stopping, always changing. I knew what was making them come, I had been there and I would always know.
Meet Jimmy Flick. He’s not like other kids – he’s both too fast and too slow. He sees too much, and too little. Jimmy’s mother Paula is the only one who can manage him. She teaches him how to count sheep so that he can fall asleep. She holds him tight enough to stop his cells spinning. It is only Paula who can keep Jimmy out of his father’s way. But when Jimmy’s world falls apart, he has to navigate the unfathomable world on his own, and make things right.
The launch of Sofie’s new work is happening at Readings, Hawthorn on Thursday the 31st of July. Visit Readings, Hawthorn for more details
