Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Deborah Levy’s Hot Milk explores the strange and sometimes monstrous nature of womanhood through the opposing figures of mother and daughter. Dreamlike and utterly compulsive, this is a delirious fairy tale of feminine potency, a story both modern and timeless.

In Three Daughters of Eve, celebrated author Elif Shafaktakes us from Istanbul to Oxford University and home again, tracing the relationship between childhood friends Peri, Shirin and Mona, re-visiting their divergent visions of Islam, femininity and God to confront the scandal that tore them apart. Gaby Wood is Literary Director of the Booker Prize Foundation.
