Deborah Levy

Deborah Levy trained at Dartington College of Arts, leaving in 1981 to write a number of plays, highly acclaimed for their “intellectual rigour, poetic fantasy and visual imagination”. She wrote and published her first novel Beautiful Mutants, when she was 27 years old. The experience of not having to give her words to a director, actors and designer to interpret was so exhilarating, she wrote a few more. Her most recent novel, Swimming Home, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2012 (And Other Stories). Her collection of short stories published in 2013 Black Vodka (And Other Stories) 
was recently shortlisted for the Internation Frank O’Connor Short Story Award. In June 2013, Notting Hill Edition’s publish her essay Things I Don’t Want to Know, a response to George Orwell’s Why I Write.
