Black Vodka: Ten Stories
"Kissing you is like new paint and old pain. It is like coffee and car alarms and a dim stairway and a stain and it's like smoke."From the Man Booker Prize 2012 and BBC International Short Story Award 2012 shortlisted Deborah Levy
Deborah Levy was also shortlisted for the 2012 Specsavers National Book Awards (UK Author of the Year) and 2013 Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Prize.
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 gardens, birds sing in computer start-up sounds; in ad-land, 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.
