August Blue by Deborah Levy

I couldn’t decide if August Blue was a work of genius or a literary ramble. And upon finishing, I’m still somewhat on the fence. Elsa (the name, the blue hair, froze on stage – shades of Disney?) drifts around Europe and says goodbye to her mentor and adopted father. The writing carried this novel for me, I struggled with Swimming Home but here the prose was pitch perfect. Definitely not a novel for all, but I did enjoy it, though I’m not sure what I’ve just read…
