Synopsis

SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2016

SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE 2016



Plunge into this hypnotic tale of female sexuality and power - from the Man Booker shortlisted author of Swimming Home



Two women arrive in a village on the Spanish coast. Rose is suffering from a strange illness andher doctors are mystified. Her daughter Sofia has brought her here to find a cure with the infamous and controversial Dr Gomez - a man of questionable methods and motives. Intoxicated by thick heat and the seductive people who move through it, both women begin to see their lives clearly for the first time in years.



Through the opposing figures of mother and daughter, Deborah Levy explores the strange and monstrous nature of womanhood. Dreamlike and utterly compulsive, Hot Milk is a delirious fairy tale of feminine potency, a story both modern and timeless.

Staff Choice

This luminous novel is dense with the heat of  Andalusian summer and heavy with the threat of medusas lurking beneath the surface of the cool Mediterranean. Hot Milk charts the shifts and tangles of human relationships as identities blur and tensions build to breaking point. Erotic, disturbing, and utterly compelling.
