Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2010.

 

Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 1 April 2010.

 

Longlisted for the prestigious 2010 Orange Prize.

 

February 2010 Book of the Month.

 

With the recent television adaptation of Levy’s best known novel, Small Island, there has been great anticipation of this new novel and Levy does not disappoint. A sensitive story told through the eyes of a young girl enslaved on a Jamaican plantation in the 1800’s. Mesmerising, fascinating and moving this is another gem of a book.

 

March 2010 Good Housekeeping selection.

 

The Good Housekeeping view...

Her previous novel, Small Island, was a massive success, winning numerous awards including the
Orange Prize for Fiction, and was adapted into a BBC1 drama. Now comes The Long Song (Headline), a vivid, sometimes brutal and incredibly absorbing story of life on a Jamaican sugar plantation during the turbulent dying days of slavery. Told in the words of July, a resourceful and necessarily resilient housemaid, it portrays the struggle of master and slave to find their place in the world, and is ultimately a tale of salvation.
