Speaker: Deborah Levy
She felt… how life, from being made up of little separate incidents which one lived one by one, became curled and whole like a wave which bore one up with it and threw one down with it, there, with a dash on the beach – Virginia Woolf
Cited by Time magazine as one of the 100 best novels in the English language, To the Lighthouse is as startling to readers today as it was when it first appeared in 1927. Written in stream-of-consciousness style with very little dialogue and almost no plot, Virginia Woolf explores, through the Ramsay’s summer home on the Isle the Skye, loss, time, perception, and the relationship between her own parents.
Deborah Levy is a playwright, novelist and poet of dazzling power. Her work has been staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company and her latest novel, Swimming Home, was shortlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize. Her essay Thing's I Don't Want to Know – a response to George Orwell's Why I Write is published by Notting Hill Editions.
