The fabric of time and space bend in fascinating ways in new novels by Man Booker Award-winner Deborah Levy (The Man Who Knew Everything) and Sandra Newman (The Heavens). From a car accident on Abbey Road to dreams that flip between Shakespeare’s England and a post-apocalyptic vision of New York, Levy and Newman write new realities. How do the characters—or any of us—know what’s truly real? Please Note: Unfortunately, Deborah Levy has had to cancel her Festival appearance. This will be a conversation with Sandra Newman.
