A BOOK SO RED
“Rachel Levy is a wizard—gory, tender and wickedly funny.” - Noy Holland, author of Bird
“It’s as if Rachel Levy put the carcass of the novel on the butcher block: choice language cutlets remain.” - Sara Levine, author of Treasure Island!!!
“In Necessary Objects, the inanimate items surrounding us are anything but lifeless, anything but ordinary. The staple is what binds two lovers. Icemakers are repurposed to preserve the human psyche, blenders to splice language and ‘reconcile contradictory desires.’ Rachel Levy explores our need for objects and our desire for love and acceptance with an unforgettable voice and a narrative energy that is a force to be reckoned with.”
