Product description

Review

"The two picaresque novels . . . glimmer with dazzling flashes of fantasy and surreality. These exercises in the literary avant-garde resonate with moving reflections on exile and alienation." --Publishers Weekly

"Audacious." --Publishers Weekly on BEAUTIFUL MUTANTS

"A bold debut; [Beautiful Mutants marked] the arrival of a fractured fictional world in which characters spoke in riddles, dissolved and remade themselves, attracted and repelled one another and us, against a highly textured backdrop of images and objects. It was antagonistic, provocative fiction, made to describe and to flourish in Europe's geopolitical cracks." --The Guardian

"[Beautiful Mutants] throbs its way into the imagination like the unguided missiles it decries." --The Observer

"One of the few contemporary British writers comfortable on a world stage." --The New Statesman on SWALLOWING GEOGRAPHY

"Luminously precise . . . accomplished . . . The prose is lean, unencumbered, and at its best in moments of pure lyricism." --The Independent on SWALLOWING GEOGRAPHY

"An immersive, empathy-inducing reading experience . . . Deborah Levy's earlier books are a sonorous, whimsical introduction to the immigrant experience in London." --The Huffington Post

"[Levy's] prose veers from dreamlike reverie to bald aggression in the turn of a sentence, never resting . . . The macabre and the lyrical pile up and cry out with urgency . . . Bloomsbury's re-issue of these two works together allows for a deeper appreciation of Levy's distinctive sensibility." --KGB Bar Lit Magazine
