Black Vodka: Ten Stories PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Black Vodka: Ten Stories free pdf The stories in "Black Vodka," by acclaimed author Deborah Levy, are perfectly formed worlds unto themselves, written in elegant yet economical prose. She is a master of the short story, exploring loneliness and belonging- violence and tenderness- the ephemeral and the solid- the grotesque and the beautiful- love and infidelity- and fluid identities national, cultural, and personal. In "Shining a Light," a woman's lost luggage is juxtaposed with far more serious losses. An icy woman seduces a broken man in "Vienna," and a man's empathy threatens to destroy him in "Stardust Nation." "Cave Girl" features a girl who wants to be a different kind of woman she succeeds in a shocking way. A deformed man seeks beauty amid his angst in the title story. These are twenty-first century lives dissected with razor-sharp humor and curiosity. Published simultaneously with "Things I Don't Want to Know: On Writing," Levy's stories will send you tumbling into a rabbit hole, and you won't be able to scramble out until long after you've turned the last page. "Deborah Levy showed she is a top-hitting novelist with a Man Booker Prize shortlist place for "Swimming Home." Can she conquer the genre which demands she fashion perfect jewels? . . . Yes, Levy can do macro- and microcosm. These tales of unconventional love reinforce her reputation as a major contemporary writer who never pulls her punches." "The Independent ""
