About this author

Anna Stothard was born in London, but has lived in Washington DC, Beijing and Los Angeles. Her second novel, The Pink Hotel, came out in 2011 and was longlisted for the 2012 Orange Prize.

She now lives in Chalk Farm, London. Her third novel, The Art of Leaving, is out March 2013. She also writes about travel for The Observer Magazine.



I’ve moved to Berlin and now live in an apartment with jungle animals painted on the front, near a park with a fairground. I’m back in London this weekend though, for cocktails and Soho stories at London’s most intimate literary event, The Word Factory #11 at The Society Club.

Anna's Recent Updates

“In einem Abschied lag ein so großes Potential. Er war viel aufrichtiger, und während man sich voneinander entfernte, verschwanden einfach alle Fehler, die man gemacht, und alles was man mit dieser Person zusammen geworden war, so dass man neu anfangen und das sein konnte, was man wollte”
Anna Stothard, Die Kunst, Schluss zu machen

“Der langsame Trennungsprozess, als ihre Leben sich voneinander lösten, als der Riss zwischen ihnen immer breiter wurde, war zweifellos angenehm: Es brachte ihre Haut zum kribbeln. Je fester der Griff, desto größer war vielleicht die Erleichterung beim Loslassen.”
Anna Stothard, The Art of Leaving

“Wenn man Schluss macht, gibt es immer den Augenblick, wo sich ein Mensch, der Teil deines Lebens war, wieder in die Menge einreiht, und obwohl er noch immer vor einem steht, wieder zum Fremden wird. Der Körper vor einem erstarrt zu etwas, woran man sich nur aus der Zeit erinnert, bevor man ihn sehr gut kannte. Das ist wie die Umkehrung eines ersten Kusses, der sich von Intimität zur Fremdheit zurückentwickelt, ohne das man den Ort wechselt. Es hat den Ruch von Erinnerung, ähnlich wie das erste mal, wenn du dir von jemandem das Top ausziehen lässt.”
Anna Stothard, The Art of Leaving
