Real Estate (PB)

Author(s): Deborah Levy


Fearless and essential - the highly anticipated final instalment in Deborah Levy's critically acclaimed 'Living Autobiography' Following the international critical and commercial success of The Cost of Living, this final volume of Levy's 'Living Autobiography' is an exhilarating, thought-provoking and boldly intimate meditation on home and the spectres that haunt it. It resumes and expands Levy's pioneering examination of a female life lived in the storm of the present tense, asking essential questions about womanhood, modernity, creative identity and personal freedom. From one of the great thinkers and writers of our time, Real Estate is a memoir and a manifesto for radical emancipation - as an artist, as a woman, and as an inheritor of the real estate of the now.

Matilda Bookshop Review

In this incandescent third of Levy's autobiographical trilogy, we see the author unravelling for herself what it means to have real estate. And not just physical real estate--the elegant house with a pomegranate tree and lake--but the real estate of dreams, of agency, of self-worth. And the real estate of her imaginative life. Spending time between London, Paris and Greece, Levy, now sixty, writes with wry humour of the things and places that give her a sense of real estate: her writing, her daughters, her friendships, her lovely shoes, and the incredible spaces she inhabits. Absolutely riveting writing on feminism, books, creativity, relationships, rooms of one's own. I LOVE this. Molly
