A Woman’s Place: Deborah Levy Talks To Joan Bakewell

Deborah Levy’s celebrated trilogy of memoirs considers what it costs a woman to live with meaning and pleasure in a patriarchal world. The final volume, Real Estate, makes the existential case for a female character who takes ownership of the deeds of her own life. And it accounts for the enduring relationships – with friends, lovers, family and literary forebears – that travel with us wherever we live, as well as those we must outgrow and leave behind.

Deborah joins Festival Guest Curator Joan Bakewell (The Tick of Two Clocks) for a wide-ranging conversation about her ‘living autobiography’ – written “in the storm of life”.
