‘These tales of unconventional love reinforce Levy’s reputation as a major contemporary writer who never pulls her punches.’
‘Metropolitan and knowingly sophisticated.’
‘These ominous, odd, erotic stories burrow deep into your brain.’
‘A collection of mischievous vignettes of Mitteleuropa.’
‘Like their protagonists, these stories are powerful because they are fragmentary, elliptical.’
‘Levy’s pen is a volatile weapon.’
Times Literary Supplement
‘Levy sensitively conveys the phenomenology of textures, of skin and breath. Embedded in her coiled, polished sentences is the drive that pushes us together, and forces us apart.’
