Story/Teller: Deborah Levy Presents The Man Who Saw Everything with Richard Bekins

November 4, 2019

Stage and screen actor Richard Bekins performed excerpts from Deborah Levy’s The Man Who Saw Everything, longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, before engaging in a discussion on the craft of storytelling with the acclaimed author, playwright, and poet. In The Man Who Saw Everything, Deborah Levy traverses the vast reaches of the human imagination while artfully blurring sexual and political binaries-feminine and masculine, East and West, past and present—to reveal the full spectrum of our world. Through prose packed with intellectual vigor, humor and melancholy from sentence to sentence, Levy’s story manages to land squarely in the heart.
