Playing with the Grown Ups

Tuesday April 8th 2008

This is the title of Sophie Dahl's new novel, which is just about to come out here in the states. On Tuesday she had an intimate book launch hosted by Mens Vogue at Keens Steakhouse ( which happens to be my favourite place to escape for a quick after work drink; dating back to 1885 it was frequented by Lillie Langtry and strangely has the world largest collection of clay churchwarden pipes on the ceiling!).

The book chronicles the adventures of Kitty (total coincidence) and Marina.Sophie, who I hadn't seen since she moved back to England, looked radiant.
