Plunge into this hypnotic tale of female sexuality and power - from the Man Booker shortlisted author of Swimming Home.

Two women arrive in a village on the Spanish coast. Rose is suffering from a strange illness and her doctors are mystified.

Her daughter Sofia has brought her here to find a cure with the infamous and controversial Dr Gomez - a man of questionable methods and motives. Intoxicated by thick heat and the seductive people who move through it, both women begin to see their lives clearly for the first time in years.

Through the opposing figures of mother and daughter, Deborah Levy explores the strange and monstrous nature of womanhood. Hot Milk is a profound exploration of the sting of sexuality, of unspoken female rage, of myth and modernity, the lure of hypochondria and big pharma, and, above all, the value of experimenting with life; of being curious, bewildered, and vitally alive to the world.

Dreamlike and utterly compulsive, Hot Milk is a delirious fairy tale of feminine potency, a story both modern and timeless.

'Hot Milk is an extraordinary novel, beautifully rich, vividly atmospheric and psychologically complex . . . Every man and woman should read it' - Bernardine Evaristo.

'Hypnotic . . . This novel has a transfixing gaze and a terrible sting that burns long after the final page is turned' - The Observer.
