A feverish coming-of-age novel Daily Telegraph A triumph of storytelling Literary Review Today I dropped my laptop on the concrete floor of a bar built on the beach. My laptop has all my life in it and knows more about me than anyone else. So what I am saying is that if it is broken, so am I . . . Perfectly crafted. So mesmerising that reading it is to be under a spell Independent on Sunday Hot Milk treads a sweaty, sun-drenched path into the history books.

What makes the book so good is Levys great imagination, the poetry of her language, her way of finding the wonder in the everyday. Its a pleasure New York Times Terrific, sizzling with heat and sexuality . . . You devour it in one sitting Radio Times Unmissable New Statesman
