The Unloved is a hypnotising novel by the Man Booker-shortlisted writer Deborah Levy.A group of hedonistic West European tourists gather to celebrate Christmas in a remote French chateau. Then an Englishwoman is brutally murdered, and the sad, eerie child Tatiana 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. The Unloved offers a bold and revealing look at some of the events that shaped European and African history, and the perils of a future founded on concealed truth.Praise for Deborah Levy: 'Deborah Levy's storytelling is allusive, elliptical and disturbing.
