Sick Mood at Noon
Deborah Levy contributes to "How we live now", a series run by the New Statesman on how the pandemic has changed our lives. "Sick mood at noon" reflects on shopping for groceries, wearing masks, and how our new world is changing little by little.
“Despite the masks we are currently obliged to wear, the contempt, or perhaps just plain lack of respect from well-fed Etonians for the valuable minds and shamefully hungry bodies of our nation’s poorest children, has been unmasked. This is the major mood in which we now live.”
