Ophelia and the Great Idea - Deborah Levy

London: Jonathan Cape, 1989, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edge of the text block tanned.

From the cover: “Throughout this, the first collection of short stories from playwright Deborah Levy, knowledge and intuition, science and love are juxtaposed as conflicting sources of motivation.

Each character portrayed embodies a dilemma and enacts a drama in settings that vary from Ibiza to Camden Town, from rural Spain to a precarious rowing-boat. The author is concerned with chaos and loss of hope, with corruption and commitment to finding a truth. She takes our world as it is, as it has been and life as it could be.”
