  • Unsettling, challenging and gloriously written, Hot Milk by Deborah Levy is the multi-generational story of a hallucinatory sort of summer

    Juliet Nicolson, Evening Standard
  • Leaves the reader enraptured and unnerved

    Jackie Annesley, Evening Standard
  • Publisher's description. Shortlisted for the Man Booker and Goldsmiths prizes, a hypnotic tale of female sexuality and power under the scorching midday sun. Sofia and her mother arrive on the Spanish coast looking for answers - what they find there will be strange, seductive and fearsome beyond their wildest dreams.

  • intense, sun-drenched story. The prose veers dizzily between the poetic and the convoluted, spreading a hallucinatory patina of weirdness over everything. This is a writer for whom ordinary language just will not do.

    The Times
  • An extraordinary novel, beautifully rich, vividly atmospheric and psychologically complex. Every woman should read it

    Bernardine Evaristo, author of MR LOVERMAN
  • So mesmerising that reading it is to be under a spell...Sex suffuses the novel, with pleasure frequently crossing into pain

    Independent on Sunday
  • A smart, seductive and utterly beguiling read

    Mail on Sunday
  • Elegant and deeply strange [and] hummingly funny throughout

  • What makes the book so good is Ms. Levy's great imagination, the poetry of her language [and] moving gracefully among pathos, danger and humor
