This delightful debut novel about music, fate, and love—from beloved songwriter and Bangles co-founder Susanna Hoffs—is "a total knockout" and "the smart, ferocious rock-star redemption romance you didn't know you needed" (New York Times Book Review).
"This Bird Has Flown is SO GOOD. If you liked Daisy Jones or Juliet, Naked, I feel like you will love this one." ―Taylor Jenkins Reid
"Hoffs nails the life and heartbreak of rock and roll, academia, and our soul-nourishing connection to our very own soul-mate so expertly she must have carved it in Norwegian Wood! And isn't it good!" ―Tom Hanks
"This isn't just a book, it's a love song, and it should come as no surprise that Susanna Hoffs has crafted the perfect one to put on your playlist." ―Christina Lauren
Jane Start is thirty-three, broke, and recently single. Ten years prior, she had a hit song—written by world-famous superstar Jonesy—but Jane hasn't had a breakout since. Now she's living out of four garbage bags at her parents' house. Rock bottom.
But when her longtime manager Pippa sends Jane to London to regroup, she's seated next to a handsome stranger on the flight—the intriguingly named Tom Hardy, an Oxford professor of literature. Jane is instantly smitten, and soon, truly inspired. But it's not Jane's past alone that haunts her second chance at stardom, and at love. Is Tom all that he seems? And can Jane emerge from the shadow of Jonesy's earlier hit, and into the light of her own?
In turns deeply sexy, riotously funny, and utterly joyful, This Bird Has Flown explores love, passion, and the ghosts of our past, and offers a glimpse inside the music business that could only come from beloved songwriter Susanna Hoffs.
"This book will hook you like the best pop song that you can't stop playing—something that Susanna knows a little something about!" ―Molly Ringwald
"A sweet and tender romance—and a valentine to music." —NPR
"This book is a blast . . . about art and new beginnings and love and friendship and taking risks, it's such a fun read." ―Jasmine Guillory
