Deborah Levy

An Amorous Discourse in the Suburbs of Hell

She is a shimmering, melancholy angel, flown from Paradise to save him from the suburbs of hell. He an accountant, dreaming of a white Christmas, a little garden and someone to love. She attempts to fly him away from his habits and fears, while he holds on tight to all he knows.

Man Booker Prize-shortlisted Deborah Levy whips up a storm of romance and slapstick, of heavenly and earthly delights, in this dystopian philosophical poem about individual freedom and the search for the good life.

This is the paperback edition of An Amorous Discourse in the Suburbs of Hell, published in hardback by And Other Stories in 2014.
