DEBORAH LEVY – HOT MILK
After reading “Things I Don’t Want to Know” by Deborah Levy, it is impossible to resist reading another novel by the author.
Editor: Sidni Karavil

Since Deborah Levy’s book “Things I don’t Want to Know” was a big inspiration for my writing life, I wanted to read other books by her. She calls this book her “living autobiography”, telling about her childhood in South Africa and her teenage years in England where she felt like she was in “exile”.

These days, I am reading her novel “Hot Milk”, whose narrator Sofia is in a bar on the beach in Southern Spain. She drops her laptop and the screen is shattered. “My laptop has all my life in it and knows more about me than anyone else. So, what I am saying is that if it is broken, so am I.” Then we begin to learn about Sofia’s life, which is on hold because of her mother’s illness and her father’s abandonment. Hot Milk is a rich novel going deep into Sofia’s life revealing truth and identity.
