Early Levy

Beautiful Mutants and Swallowing Geography



Back in print at last, 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.
