About Sophie van der Stap
Sophie van der Stap was 21 years-old when she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. A striking, fun-loving student, overnight her world was reduced to the sterile confines of a hospital. But within these walls Sophie discovered a whole new world of white coats, gossiping nurses, and sexy doctors. Of shared rooms, hair loss, and eyebrow pencils.
Sophie wrote of her experiences in her refreshingly candid book, The Girl with Nine Wigs. When it was originally published in The Netherlands in 2006, it became an instant bestseller and won the Bart Prize for Making the Impossible Possible. It also stormed the charts internationally. The Academy Award-winning producer Andreas Bareiss is currently adapting The Girl with Nine Wigs into a film.Sophie is currently working on two novels.Sophie is now 32 years-old and has lived for many years in Paris. Her cancer is in complete remission. She still occasionally wears wigs.
