9780241146590: The Unloved

When a group of hedonistic West European tourists gather to celebrate Christmas in a remote French chateau, an English woman is murdered. Tatiana, the sad eerie child, declares she knows who did it. The subsequent inquiry into her death to be more of an investigation into the nature of love, insatiable rage and sadistic desire. Interrupting this European world view is the abrasive presence of a North African woman who insists she was a famous writer's whore. When she hijacks their vacation by unfolding the narrative of the grand colonial war she witnessed as a teenager, she ruins their version of history for ever.

About the Author:

Deborah Levy was born in 1969, studied theatre at Dartington College of Arts, and now lives in London. Her plays include Pax, which City Limits considred 'remarkable for its combination of intellectual rigour, poetic fantasy and visual imagination' and Heresies for the Royal Shakespeare Company, 'An ambitious, imaginative, sometimes funny, sometimes touching, passage across a terrain where moral parables and folk fancies meet' (Marina Warner, Independent). She has also published a collection of short stories, Ophelia and the Great Idea, and a novel, Beautiful Mutants, and, most recently, Swallowing Geography, all of which are published by Vintage.

Review:

“Brave and brilliant.” ―The Independent (UK)

“A startling work . . . Levy's world is horrifyingly violent, but she describes this dead European culture with a compelling, cool precision, always paring her language, never judging.” ―The Times (UK)

“Impressively ambitious . . . . Unusual and memorable.” ―Times Literary Supplement

“Conjure[s] fractured and fluid worlds that are wholly immersive.” ―The Guardian

“Deborah Levy is remarkably prolific. She's written radio plays, a Booker-nominated novel, and a page-turning yet poetic short story collection. Her last novel, Swimming Home, shared a family's odd exploits while on summer vacation -- similarly, The Unloved features a cast of tourists celebrating the holidays together in a chateau.” ―Huffington Post, 2015 Books We Can't Wait to Read

“A dark, uncomfortable story of desire and damage . . . Levy's approach is cerebral and unsentimental, exploring, in prose both sensuous and supple, the sadness and perplexity of children, the unsatisfied desires of adults, and, above all, the power and role of love. Graphic, claustrophobic and fractured, this is emotionally violent and challenging work from a bold modern writer.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Cerebral . . . Levy brings a poetic and slightly surreal voice . . . The Unloved is a challenging and deeply literary read.” ―New York Journal of Books
