The Unloved

“All of Deborah Levy is here. The narrative is constructed around the investigation of a murder, but its resolution is somehow incidental to the sadness, sexuality and violence with which every stunning sentence is charged. The body is such an important unit in Levy’s work, forever at work to express latent psychological trauma. She is certainly no Cartesian” – Kevin Breathnach, Totally Dublin

Levy attempts to convey the loneliness at the heart of human existence and the damage wrought by the absence of love. A brave and brilliant book – Christina Patterson, The Independent
