To our joy on Friday 14th September Deborah Levy’s story ‘Black Vodka’ was announced as one of the shortlisted stories in the BBC International Short Story Award. On Tuesday 11th, Levy’s Swimming Home was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. What a week for her. Her stories are something else. Our warm congratulations to her – and our wishes for her to win both prizes!
