Reviews

An up-to-date version of 'A Room of One's Own' . . . I suspect it will be quoted for many years to come * Irish Examiner *
Superb sharpness and originality of imagination. It is feminist and political while being an inspiring work of writing . . . She writes on the high wire, unfalteringly -- Marina Warner
Levy's strength is her originality of thought and expression -- Jeanette Winterson
An exciting writer, sharp and shocking as the knives her characters wield * Sunday Times *
One of the few contemporary British writers comfortable on a world stage * New Statesman *
A writer whose anger and confusion in the face of the world transform into poetic flights of fancy . . . which always feel marvellously right * Independent *
