Swallowing Geography

  • LIGHTHOUSE - Edinburgh's Radical Bookshop 43-45 West Nicolson Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH8 9DB United Kingdom (map)

with author Deborah Levy

Booker-shortlisted poet, playwright and novelist Deborah Levy comes to celebrate the re-launch of her classic novella, Swallowing Geography. A short and irreverent homage to Kerouac’s On The Road, this 1993 novella charts a new, dizzying, end-of-the-century world of shifting boundaries and displaced peoples.
