A stunning early novel by the twice Booker-shortlisted author of Hot Milk and Swimming Home, Deborah Levy.
Like her namesake Jack Kerouac, J.K. is always on the road, travelling Europe with her typewriter in a pillowcase. From J.K.'s irreverent, ironic perspective, Levy charts a new, dizzying, end-of-the-century world of shifting boundaries and displaced peoples.
'An exciting writer, sharp and shocking as the knives her characters wield' Sunday Times 'Levy is a brilliant writer' Telegraph 'Levy's strength is her originality of thought and expression' Jeanette Winterson
