Sophie Ellis-Bextor's Debut Book to be Published in October 2021
Sophie Ellis-Bextor's debut book will be her autobiograpy, SPINNING PLATES: Thoughts on Music, Motherhood and Men, to be published by Coronet (Hodder) in October 2021.
Part memoir, part musings, Sophie will write about the conjuring act of adulthood and motherhood and how her experience of working while raising her five sons has given her the inescapable lesson of how to navigate life in the face of failure and imperfection. Covering relationships, good enough parenting, the importance of delusion and dancing, Sophie writes about the things that take on greater importance as life becomes more complicated. From the non-negotiables (solitude, music, glitter) to the unimportant (clean hair, deadlines, appropriate behaviour), this is a book about learning from our experiences and not being afraid to smash a few plates for the sake of what we actually need, want and value.
