Real Estate concludes Deborah Levy’s groundbreaking Living Autobiography trilogy. Tash Aw, the novelist known for The Harmony Silk Factory and Five Star Billionaire, joins Levy to celebrate the launch of her new book with a conversation on the final installment in the series. After exploring a woman’s search for meaning and the dimensions of love in the previous Living Autobiography books, Real Estate meditates on the home and the haunt of a patriarchal society.
