The Sixth Day and Other Tales Reviews


Clever, funny and ominous, these stories also celebrate Levi's belief that the human spirit- which was created on the sixth day- is a fire that cannot easily be quenched. SUNDAY TIMES Levi's relentless need to expose the dangers of our blinkered, myopic view of ourselves and nature makes for a chastening, oddly cheering experience, rich in irony, rarer for its paradoxical affection. Q MAGAZINE Ingenious, compelling tales. OBSERVER
