Read full description of the books:
This exquisite little book is dangerous to read on public transport because you will miss your stop. It is also dangerous to read in bed because it will not send you to sleep. I must also warn the potential reader that she will grieve being without this book soon after starting on it, because it is too short.
Having said that the book is concentrated literary goodness. And expands my knowledge and wisdom by a magical transference. I will never again see Barby dolls, budgerigars, soft toys, door handles or for that matter peoples obsession with kitty movies on Youtube in the same light again. Its refraction of the child’s intellect gives me more respect for the naughtiness of children. Its descriptions of black people in South Africa combines human respect, empathy and profound outrage in simple phrases and descriptions. Descriptions like beautiful nails that deserve to be firmly hammered in.
An argument for artists research that is intuitive, probing and playing a long game.
This is a modern classic of self-reflexive cross-genre writing. Read it. Be it.

Read information about the authorDeborah Levy trained at Dartington College of Arts leaving in 1981 to write a number of plays, highly acclaimed for their "intellectual rigour, poetic fantasy and visual imagination", including PAX, HERESIES for the Royal Shakespeare Company, CLAM, CALL BLUE JANE, SHINY NYLON, HONEY BABY MIDDLE ENGLAND, PUSHING THE PRINCE INTO DENMARK and MACBETH-FALSE MEMORIES, some of which are published in LEVY: PLAYS 1 (Methuen)
Deborah wrote and published her first novel BEAUTIFUL MUTANTS (Vintage), when she was 27 years old. The experience of not having to give her words to a director, actors and designer to interpret, was so exhilarating, she wrote a few more. These include, SWALLOWING GEOGRAPHY, THE UNLOVED (Vintage) and BILLY and GIRL (Bloomsbury). She has always written across a number of art forms (see Bookworks and Collaborations with visual artists) and was Fellow in Creative Arts at Trinity College, Cambridge from 1989-1991.
