Paris launch of The Last Kings of Sark by Rosa Rankin-Gee at Shakespeare and co

November 14, 2013 @ 7:00 pm

Rosa Rankin-Gee won the inaugural Paris Literary Prize in 2011 for The Last Kings of Sark, published this November by Virago. The Last Kings of Sark is a bewitching ode to youth, summer’s strange haze, the idea of an island, scallop smuggling, and rosé in the morning. A luminous debut from a compelling new voice in literary fiction. Rosa Rankin-Gee grew up in Kensal Rise, London, but now lives by the Parc de Belleville in Paris. In 2010, she was one of Esquire magazine’s ’75 Brilliant Young Brits’. Rosa runs a night-bird version of a Book Club, where up to 300 people come to swap books and drink cocktails in the former home of George Bizet. This is her first novel.
