Riassunto: 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.
L'autore: 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.

The Unloved is a hypnotising novel by the Man Booker-shortlisted writer Deborah Levy. A group of hedonistic West European tourists gather to celebrate Christmas in a remote French chateau. Then an Englishwoman is brutally murdered, and the sad, eerie child Tatiana declares she knows who did it. The subsequent inquiry into the death proves to be more of an investigation into the nature of love, insatiable rage and sadistic desire. The Unloved offers a bold and revealing look at some of the events that shaped European and African history, and the perils of a future founded on concealed truth. Praise for Deborah Levy: "Deborah Levy's storytelling is allusive, elliptical and disturbing. Her touch is gentle, often funny and always acute". (Independent). "One of the few contemporary British writers comfortable on a world stage". (New Statesman). "An exciting writer, sharp and shocking as the knives her characters wield". (Sunday Times). "A brave and brilliant book". (Independent on The Unloved). Deborah Levy writes fiction, plays and poetry. Her work has been staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company, and she is the author of numerous books, including the essay 'Things I Don't Want to Know' and the early novels Swallowing Geography and Beautiful Mutants.
