Levy began writing only in her mid-thirties, but she attracted attention immediately with her first novel, the semi-autobiographical Every Light in the House Burnin'. Her fourth novel, Small Island (2004), won the Whitbread Book of the Year award, the Orange Prize for Fiction, and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. It has since been made into a television drama, which was broadcast by the BBC in December 2009.
Her fifth novel, "The Long Song" was short-listed for the 2010 Man Booker Prize for fiction.
