‘Propulsive, uncanny, dreamlike. A feverish coming-of-age novel’ Daily Telegraph

‘A triumph of storytelling’ Literary Review

‘Today I dropped my laptop on the concrete floor of a bar built on the beach. My laptop has all my life in it and knows more about me than anyone else. So what I am saying is that if it is broken, so am I . . .’

‘Perfectly crafted. So mesmerising that reading it is to be under a spell’ Independent on Sunday

‘Hot Milk treads a sweaty, sun-drenched path into the history books. A properly great novel’ Romola Garai

‘Hot Milk is an extraordinary novel, beautifully rich, vividly atmospheric and psychologically complex… Every man and woman should read it’ Bernardine Evaristo

‘The contemporary writer I admire most’ Linda Grant

‘Hypnotic… This novel has a transfixing gaze and a terrible sting that burns long after the final page is turned’ Observer

‘Gorgeous. What makes the book so good is Levy’s great imagination, the poetry of her language, her way of finding the wonder in the everyday. It’s a pleasure’ New York Times

‘Terrific, sizzling with heat and sexuality . . . You devour it in one sitting’ Radio Times

‘Unmissable’ New Statesman

Publisher Review

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. * Penguin * Leaves the reader enraptured and unnerved * Jackie Annesley, Evening Standard * 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 *
