Anna Stothard was born in London and lived in Washington DC as a child. She read English at Oxford, then moved to Los Angeles for two years. Her first novel, Isabel and Rocco, was published in 2004. Helen Dunmore deemed the writing as "hypnotic, transgressive and enclosed... remarkable". Her second novel, The Pink Hotel, was published in 2011 and longlisted for the Orange Prize 2012. "Astonishingly good," said The Times; "an elegant noirish mystery," said The Independent. Film rights for The Pink Hotel have been bought in LA and the book is being published by Diogenes in Germany, Siruela in Spain, Picador in America, as well being translated into Czech, Chinese and Thai. She is currently living in Chalk Farm, London, and writing her third novel.
