Hot Milk: Deborah Levy with Lauren Elkin

‘There is a sort of chase for coherence in the current commercial market for fiction ... a sort of terror of there being any kind of mystery in a book, or even a character being confused.’

Deborah Levy, described by Lauren Elkin in the TLS as ‘one of the most exciting voices in contemporary British fiction,’ was at the Bookshop to talk about her latest novel Hot Milk (Hamish Hamilton), which explores the strange and monstrous nature of motherhood.

‘A bright broth of myth, psychology, Freudian symbolism and contemporary anxiety.’ – Guardian
