Join us for a reading and signing with Deborah Levy, author of Swimming Home and Hot Milk.
Sofia, a young anthropologist, has spent much of her life trying to solve the mystery of her mother's unexplainable illness. When she and her mother travel to coast of southern Spain to see a famous consultant--their very last gasp at a cure--they meet Dr. Gomez whose strange methods that seem to have little to do with physical medicine. Sofia's role as detective--tracking her mother's symptoms in an attempt to find the secret motivation for her pain--deepens as she discovers her own desires in this transient desert community. Hot Milk is a profound exploration of the sting of sexuality, of unspoken female rage, of myth and modernity, the lure of hypochondria and big pharma, and, above all, the value of being curious and vitally alive to the world. Deborah Levy trained at Dartington College of Arts before becoming a playwright. She’s written several plays as well as novels, including Swimming Home, which was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize.
