When a group of hedonistic West European tourists gather to celebrate Christmas in a remote French chateau, an English woman is murdered. Tatiana, 'the unloved child', declares she knows who did it. The subsequent inquiry into the death proves to be more of an investigation into the nature of love, insatiable rage and sadistic desire, framed within an unfolding narrative of colonial violence which will change the tourists' version of history for ever.
Presaging the style and form of her Man Booker-shortlisted Swimming Home, The Unloved is a pivotal novel in Levy's career, first published in 1994 and reissued now for a new generation of readers.
'Brave and brilliant, measured and lyrical.' Independent
'Levy's sense of dramatic form is unerring, and her precise, dispassionate prose effortlessly summons people and landscapes.' New Yorker
