Praise for The Cost of Living

A Guardian Best Book of the 21st Century

Wonderful. Not so much a memoir as an eloquent manifesto for what Levy calls "a new way of living“.  Guardian

I can't think of any writer aside from Virginia Woolf who writes better about what it is to be a woman. Observer

Wise, subtle and ironic, Levy is a brilliant writer... Each sentence is a small masterpiece of clarity and poise. That shed should be endowed with a blue plaque. Telegraph
