Description:

New York. 1989. Viking Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 90 pages. hardcover. Front cover photo by Anthony Loew. ISBN: 0670828920. inventory # 12998. FROM THE PUBLISHER - In Deborah Levy’s powerfully imaginative and disturbing first novel the demon-summoning, manipulative, and magical Russian exile, Lapinski, reveals a city inhabited by the dispossessed, the successful, and the damned, as she records their broken dreams and self-destructive desires. A prophet or a liar, a seer or a fake, Lapinski calls forth a number of highly contemporary and lost pilgrims - The Poet, The Prostitute, The Banker, The Golden Slut, The Anorexic Anarchist. Lust merges with violence, disillusionment with revenge, and male with female as the characters’ lives converge. Before wreaking destruction at the London Zoo, The Banker confidently declares her amoral superiority: ‘I own a prestige apartment facing the sparkle of the river, with south-facing views, a private carpark, porter, video security, entry phone, swimming pool, and a sauna to nurture my health, which is after all, my wealth. I am given all this for a good reason. I am valued; I am the advance guard of the new revolution. We are exhausted and wide awake, beserk, full of radioactivity, the first generation of beautiful mutants. And we, Lapinski, have won the moral freedom to wound.’ In the age of ‘the migrant and the missile,’ from a writer whose work Mary Gaitskill described as ‘delicate, mysterious, both playful and terribly sad,’ BEAUTIFUL MUTANTS confronts emotional and geographical displacement, the great unease and anxiety pervading the eighties with a voice that’s wise, haunting, and unforgettable.

Synopsis: The author presents a modern morality tale in which a magical Russian exile named Lapinski employs a number of lost pilgrims to expound upon modern-day emotional and geographic displacement

About the Author: Deborah Levy was born in 1969, studied theatre at Dartington College of Arts, and now lives in London. Her plays include Pax, which City Limits considered 'remarkable for its combination of intellectual rigour, poetic fantasy and visual imagination' and Heresies for the Royal Shakespeare Company, 'An ambitious, imaginative, sometimes funny, sometimes touching, passage across a terrain where moral parables and folk fancies meet' (Marina Warner, Independent). She has also published a collection of short stories, Ophelia and the Great Idea, and a novel, Beautiful Mutants, and, most recently, Swallowing Geography, all of which are published by Vintage.
