Deborah Levy's surreal and disturbing first novel, Beautiful Mutants, introduces Lapinski, a manipulative and magical Rusian exile who summons forth a number of highly contemporary urban pilgrims. Through them, Levy explores broken dreams and self-destructive desires in a shimmering and dislocated allegory of our time.
