Things I Don't Want to Know is a unique response to George Orwell from one of our most vital contemporary writers. Taking Orwell's famous list of motives for writing as the jumping-off point for a sequence of thrilling reflections on the writing life, this is a perfect companion not just to Orwell's essay, but also to Levy's own, essential oeuvre.

This is a gem. I love Deborah Levy' writing style and this, I would call it a memoir, gives an opportunity to look into her growth as a fabulous writer. I also appreciate her candid account of her childhood and sharing with us many fascinating and personal details about it. She was a very talented little girl with a very interesting perception of this complicated world.
