Description

A GUARDIAN BEST BOOK OF THE 21ST CENTURY The powerful second memoir from the twice-Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author of Hot Milk and Swimming Home'I just haven't stopped reading it . . . it talks so beautifully about being a woman' Billie Piper on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs 'Life falls apart. We try to get a grip and hold it together. And then we realise we don't want to hold it together . . .' Praise for The Cost of Living: 'It is the story of every woman throughout history who has expended her love and labour on making a home that turns out to serve the needs of everyone except herself.

Wonderful. Not so much a memoir as an eloquent manifesto' Guardian 'Wise, subtle and ironic, Levy's every sentence is a masterpiece of clarity and poise . . . a brilliant writer' Daily Telegraph 'A graceful and lyrical rumination on the questions, "What is a woman for?

What should a woman be?" ' Tatler 'I can't think of any writer aside from Virginia Woolf who writes better about what it is to be a woman' Observer 'Extraordinary and beautiful, suffused with wit and razor sharp insights' Financial Times 'A heady, absorbing read' Evening Standard
