A Loss for Literature: Andrea Levy

I was saddened to learn yesterday of the death of Andrea Levy. Her work 'Small Island' introduced me to a time and events in our culture of which I had previously been unaware. I can highly recommend this title.

An obituary by BBC News covers in some detail her life and works.

Every Light in the House Burnin', Andrea Levy (1994)

Never Far from Nowhere, Andrea Levy (1996)

Fruit of the Lemon, Andrea Levy (1999)

Small Island, Andrea Levy (2004)

The Long Song, Andrea Levy (2010)
