Swallowing Geography


Formats & editions


A stunning early novel from Booker-shortlisted author Deborah Levy, now a Penguin Essential.

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.
