Deborah Levy talks to Rosie Goldsmith

Women & Power: Living Autobiography Series

Hay Festival 2022, 

This trilogy of genre-bending living autobiographies considers the matter of finding a voice and the courage to use it. In Real Estate, Levy asks an existential question: If patriarchy owns the deeds to the land, are women its sitting tenants? If so, how might she find a house of her own? In The Cost of Living, Levy considers what it takes to become a mother, to lose a mother, to dismantle her own life and remake it anew. And in Things I Don’t Want To Know, Levy’s portrait of a young woman in the storm of life, she wonders what it takes for a writer to claim her feelings might be valuable. Deborah Levy talks to the journalist and Director of the European Literature Network.
