An Amorous Discourse in the Suburbs of Hell, Hardback Book

An Amorous Discourse in the Suburbs of Hell Hardback


She is a shimmering, tattooed and acerbic angel, flown from Paradise to save him from the suburbs of hell.

He, an accountant worn down by the day-to-day struggles of the nine to five, is dreaming of a white Christmas, a little garden and someone to love.

She attempts, with scornful wit, to shock him out of his commuter's habits and into an experience of ecstasy. Man Booker Prize shortlisted Deborah Levy whips up a storm of romance and slapstick, of heavenly and earthly delights, in this dystopian philosophical poem about individual freedom and the search for the good life.
