Synopsis

'Elisa said Yes and I said Yes. We said Yes in all the European languages. Yes. We said yes we said yes, yes to vague but powerful things, we said yes to hope which has to be vague, we said yes to love which is always blind, we smiled and said yes without blinking.' ('A Better Way to Live') ----------- How does love change us? And how do we change ourselves for love - or for lack of it? Ten stories by acclaimed author Deborah Levy explore these delicate, impossible questions. In Vienna, an icy woman seduces a broken man; in London, a bird mimics an old-fashioned telephone; in adland, a sleek copywriter becomes a kind of shaman. These are twenty-first century lives dissected with razor-sharp humour and curiosity, stories about what it means to live and love, together and alone.

Staff Choice

I love Deborah Levy, but this is where (for me at least) I think her writing really shines. Ten short (and they are short) stories that explore love, loss and life in beautiful, haunting poetic prose. The sense of strangeness pervades more deeply in some, others are more lucid, but all of them linger in the mind, leaving a deep impression. If you don't believe me, try Placing a Call. That still echoes round my head at random moments.
