Black Vodka – Deborah Levy

Kissing you is like new paint and old pain.  It is like coffee and car alarms and a dim stairway and a stain and it’s like smoke.” (extract from ‘Placing a Call’)

How does love change us?  And how do we change ourselves for love – or for lack of it?

Ten stories by acclaimed author Deborah Levy explore these delicate, impossible questions.  In Vienna, an icy woman seduces a broken man; in London gardens, birds sing in computer start-up sounds; in ad-land, a sleek copywriter becomes a kind of shaman.

These are twenty-first century lives dissected with razor-sharp humour and curiosity, stories about what it means to live and love, together and alone.

Deborah Levy is one of the most exciting voices in contemporary British fiction, and her new collection, Black Vodka, delivers the sophisticated and astringent tone her readers have long come to expect.

Lauren Elkin, TLS
