Charlotte Levin has been shortlisted for the Andrea Badenoch Award, part of the New Writers North Awards, and for the Mslexia Short Story Competition. Charlotte lives in Manchester and If I Can't Have You is her first novel.
It was obvious from the bold and compelling opening chapter that I was in the hands of a clever and skillful author . . . In Constance Little, Levin has created a memorable character, convincing, at times monstrous, often sympathetic, and full of nuance. Loved, loved, loved it -- Joanna Barnard Compulsively readable and darkly funny with pin-sharp characterization. Love love loved it -- Laura Marshall, <i>Sunday Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Friend Request</i> An exceptionally raw and visceral and painfully funny novel. Charlotte Levin writes so well and so powerfully about loneliness, longing, love and loss that Constance will stay with me for a long time -- Emma Flint, Women's Prize longlisted author of <i>Little Deaths</i> So beautifully written, such a devastatingly compelling story. I can honestly say it's one of the best books I've ever read - it is without shadow of a doubt, EASILY up there with The Girl on the Train and Eleanor Oliphant -- Ruth Jones
