Things I Don't Want to Know

ebook

The first in Deborah Levy's essential three-part 'Living Autobiography' on writing and womanhood.
'Unmissable. Like chancing upon an oasis, you want to drink it slowly . . . Subtle, unpredictable, surprising' Guardian
_________________________________
Taking George Orwell's famous essay, 'Why I Write', as a jumping-off point, Deborah Levy offers her own indispensable reflections of the writing life. With wit, clarity and calm brilliance, she considers how the writer must stake claim to that contested territory as a young woman and shape it to her need.
Things I Don't Want to Know is a work of dazzling insight and deep psychological succour, from one of our most vital contemporary writers.
The final two instalments in Deborah Levy's 'Living Autobiography', The Cost of Living and Real Estate, are available now.
