About The Book
In this brilliant, inventive, tragic farce, Deborah Levy creates the ultimate dysfunctional kids, Billy and his sister Girl. Apparently abandoned years ago by their parents, they now live alone somewhere in England. Girl spends much of her time trying to find their mother, going to strangers’ doors and addressing whatever Prozac woman who answers as “Mom.” Billy spends his time fantasizing a future in which he will be famous, perhaps in the United States as a movie star, or as a psychiatrist, or as a doctor to blondes with breast enlargements, or as the author of “Billy England’s Book of Pain.” Together they both support and torture each other, barely able to remember their pasts but intent on forging a future that will bring them happiness and reunite them with the ever-elusive Mom. Billy and Girl are every boy and girl reeling from the pain of their childhoods, forgetting what they need to forget, inventing worlds they think will be better, but usually just prolonging nightmares as they begin to create — or so it seems — alternative personalities that will allow them to survive and conquer and punish. In the end, the reader is as bewildered as Billy and Girl — have they found Mom and a semblance of family, or are, they completely out of control and ready to explode?
