“I can’t think of any writer aside from Virginia Woolf… who writes better about the liminal, the domestic, the non-event, and what it is to be a woman.” The Guardian is one of many publications to rave about UK writer Deborah Levy’s The Cost of Living: a sensual, audacious memoir about being a woman in transformation—through midlife, divorce and the death of her mother. “My marriage was the boat and I knew that if I swam back to it, I would drown,” she explains. Her work is not only a balm for those living through similar experiences but also a window into the complexities of a woman’s life at any age. Do not miss the opportunity to hear this two-time Booker-shortlisted author.
