Deborah Levy’s brilliant Black Vodka reviewed

“There’s no arguing with the poetry of Levy’s prose.” – Lucy Scholes in The Observer

Deborah Levy’s short story collection Black Vodka continues to get wonderful reviews across the media: click here for a frequently updated and complete selection.

It featured most recently in The Independent on Sunday, The Sunday Times and the Times Literary Supplement, among other print publications, as well as BBC 2’s The Review Show and BBC radio.

 Levy’s sparse, elegant, uneasy stories gain poetic, faintly surreal effects from striking details such as the “naked pear” that Lisa and the ad man see in a liqueur bottle. Like the black vodka he advertises, these tales are shot through with “stylish angst”.”- Phil Baker in The Sunday Times

As Julia Pascal stated in her The Independent review: “Yes, Levy can do macro-and microcosm. These tales of unconventional love reinforce her reputation as a major contemporary writer who never pulls her punches.“

Black Vodka is available now in bookshops.
