The Man Who Saw Everything by Deborah Levy (£8.99, foyles.co.uk)
It’s 1988, a few months before the fall of the Berlin Wall, and 28-year-old historian Saul is hit by a car when crossing Abbey Road. He breaks up with his girlfriend, moves to East Berlin, falls in love with his translator Walter, who’s spying on him for the Stasis and whose sister fancies Saul too. Flashforward to 2016, and Saul is hit by a car again when he tries to cross Abbey Road. As he lies recovering in hospital, the past and the present blur together and intermingle. Dead characters come back to life and reality shifts and changes. Intricately constructed, playful yet poetic, it’s another must-read from the brilliant Deborah Levy.
