An Interview with Sophie Dahl

More About Sophie Dahl

Sophie Dahl was born in London in 1977. She was immortalised as the orphan Sophie in the beloved children's classic The BFG, by Roald Dahl, her grandfather. Educated at The King Alfred School in London, she began modelling in 1996, after being discovered by fashion maverick Isabella Blow outside a bookshop. In 2003 her bestselling novella, The Man With The Dancing Eyes was published by Bloomsbury. She contributed to Truth or Dare, published by Picador in 2005, edited by Justine Picardie. Dahl is a contributing editor for Men's Vogue, and her work has been published in American Vogue, The Guardian, The Telegraph Magazine and The Spectator. Dahl has recently moved back to England after an eight year sojourn in New York.

Playing with the Grown-ups,published by Bloomsbury in October 2007 and in paperback in May 2008, is by turns hilarious, heartbreaking and scandalous.
