challenging emotional funny reflective medium-paced


I haven’t enjoyed reading a book this much in a long time (big slump alert!). Never heard of Deborah Levy before picking this up in the bookstore and seeing it was a short memoir about women and writing (aka perfectly up my alley).  I’ve been seeking out writers on writing, consciously or subconsciously, for a little while now. 

That being said, this type of book is obviously not for everyone. I thought the book improved as it went and I basically read it twice as I went back in to add some annotations. It was better the second time. 

The second part (in South Africa) reminded me of Tove Ditlevsen’s Childhood in narrative tone (a huge plus for me). 

I must read more from her.
