Pillow talk in Europe and other places by Deborah Levy ( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This collection of stories explores how men and women interpret and reinvent what freedom means in their relationships with one another." "In "Pillow Talk," everyday rules about decency and kindness are broken and repaired as a Czech man and an English woman search for enduring love in a world that offers them little certainty." ""Vienna" is the story of a man who has sex with an enigmatic woman, despite knowing that she despises him." "In "Cave Girl" a man relates the story of his sister's sex change, not to become a man, but rather to become "less of a real girl and more of a pretend woman." Her surgery transforms her into a woman desired by all men - including her brother."--BOOK JACKET

Black vodka : ten stories by Deborah Levy ( Book )
6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kissing you is like new paint and old pain. It is like coffee and car alarms and a dim stairway and a stain and it's like smoke.' ('Placing a Call') How does love change us? And how do we change ourselves for love - or for lack of it? Ten stories by acclaimed author Deborah Levy explore these delicate, impossible questions. In Vienna, an icy woman seduces a broken man; in London gardens, birds sing in computer start-up sounds; in ad-land, a sleek copywriter becomes a kind of shaman. These are twenty-first century lives dissected with razor-sharp humour and curiosity, stories about what it

'Swimming Home' is a subversive page-turner, a merciless gaze at the insidious harm that depression can have on apparently stable, well-turned-out people.

Heim schwimmen by Deborah Levy ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Es ist heiss. Sehr heiss. Sie sind aus London gekommen, um in einem Haus bei Nizza Ferien zu machen: Das Ehepaar Jozef und Isabel Jacobs, er Schriftsteller, sie Kriegsberichterstatterin; die beiden teilen schon lange nichts mehr, ausser der Zeit, die sie miteinander verbracht haben. Ihre vierzehnjährige Tochter Nina, die wenig von ihren Eltern hält, aber umso mehr in pubertäre Gefühlsschwankungen verstrickt ist. Schliesslich ein befreundetes Ehepaar, dessen Laden gerade pleitegeht. Beste Voraussetzungen für geruhsame Ferien. Tatsächlich bricht schon bald das Unheil herein. Ein nackter Frauenkörper treibt im Schwimmbad. Aber diese junge Frau namens Kitty Finch ist nicht tot. Schwankend zwischen verletzlich und exaltiert, nistet sich die selbsternannte Botanikerin mit den grüngelackten Nägeln in der Villa ein und mischt die ohnehin komplizierte Lage auf. Und sie wünscht sich nichts mehr, als dass der Dichter sich mit ihr und ihrem Gedicht "Heim schwimmen" beschäftigt. Deborah Levy gelingt es, in 160 Seiten und sieben erzählten Tagen ein beunruhigendes und doch vertrautes Familienpanorama zu zeichnen - unbehauste Personen, unfähig zu einem gemeinsamen Zuhause. Ein wahrer Albtraum, wäre das Buch nicht voller witziger Episoden und komischer Figuren. Deborah Levy, 1959 in Südafrika geboren, lebt als Autorin in London. Nach einigen Prosaarbeiten schrieb sie vor allem Drehbücher und Theaterstücke, die unter anderem von der Royal Shakespeare Company aufgeführt wurden. "Swimming Home" sorgte im englischsprachigen Raum für Furore und war unter den Finalisten des Man Booker Prize 2012
