Sophia of Silicon Valley: A Novel
Sophia of Silicon Valley is Anna Yen’s debut novel about plucky, newly college grad, diabetic, Sophia Young and her forays into the tech world. After being fired for her candidness from her boss, Jack Wynn, Sophia gets hired as a paralegal in a law firm that deals with pre-IPO companies. Sophia eventually impresses quirky Scott Kraft and is recruited to be the head of investor relations at Treehouse working for Scott Kraft (aka Pixar and Steve Jobs). Eventually, Sophia leaves Treehouse, and she ends up working for inventor and entrepreneur, Andre Stark (a fictionalized Elon Musk). As her dreams start to come to fruition, Sophia starts neglecting her health and she wonders if everything she’s worked for is what she really wants. The story is an easy and humorous read and I’m sure many women can relate to Sophia as she struggles with trying to have it all in a male dominated society.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
