Reviews

Unsettling, challenging and gloriously written, Hot Milk by Deborah Levy is the multi-generational story of a hallucinatory sort of summer * Juliet Nicolson, Evening Standard * Leaves the reader enraptured and unnerved * Jackie Annesley, Evening Standard * Publisher's description. Shortlisted for the Man Booker and Goldsmiths prizes, a hypnotic tale of female sexuality and power under the scorching midday sun. Sofia and her mother arrive on the Spanish coast looking for answers - what they find there will be strange, seductive and fearsome beyond their wildest dreams. * Penguin * Vibrant...an intense, sun-drenched story. The prose veers dizzily between the poetic and the convoluted, spreading a hallucinatory patina of weirdness over everything. This is a writer for whom ordinary language just will not do. * The Times * An extraordinary novel, beautifully rich, vividly atmospheric and psychologically complex. Every woman should read it * Bernardine Evaristo, author of MR LOVERMAN * So mesmerising that reading it is to be under a spell...Sex suffuses the novel, with pleasure frequently crossing into pain * Independent on Sunday * A smart, seductive and utterly beguiling read * Mail on Sunday * Elegant and deeply strange [and] hummingly funny throughout * Spectator * What makes the book so good is Ms. Levy's great imagination, the poetry of her language [and] moving gracefully among pathos, danger and humor * New York Times *
