Description

“Experimental, evocative, ironic. A book packed with unforgettably unique characters, vivid landscapes, and bizarre relationships. Each page is so expertly crafted that it will have you underlining paragraphs and painting quotes onto your bedroom walls. These two early stories foresee the genius of Levy to come.” Mikayli

Early Levy comprises two pioneering early works by Man Booker-shortlisted writer Deborah Levy.

BEAUTIFUL MUTANTS
Lapinski, a manipulative and magical Russian exile, summons forth a number of highly contemporary urban pilgrims. Through them, Levy explores broken dreams and self-destructive desires in a shimmering, dislocated allegory of its times.

SWALLOWING GEOGRAPHY
Like her namesake Jack Kerouac, J.K. is always on the road, travelling Europe with her typewriter in a pillowcase. From J.K.’s irreverent, ironic perspective, Levy charts a new, dizzying, end-of-the-century world of shifting boundaries and displaced peoples.
