Synopsis

LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE 2021

'Summer by Ali Smith is exquisite. Smith is in a class of her own and the culmination of her remarkable seasonal quartet proves it.' Nicola Sturgeon

2020 Book of the Year according to The Spectator, TLS, New Statesman and the FT


The unmissable finale to Ali Smith's dazzling literary tour de force: the Seasonal quartet concludes in 2020 with Summer


LONGLISTED FOR THE HIGHLAND BOOK PRIZE


In the present, Sacha knows the world's in trouble. Her brother Robert just is trouble. Their mother and father are having trouble. Meanwhile the world's in meltdown - and the real meltdown hasn't even started yet. In the past, a lovely summer. A different brother and sister know they're living on borrowed time.

This is a story about people on the brink of change. They're family, but they think they're strangers. So: where does family begin? And what do people who think they've got nothing in common have in common?

Summer.

'An astonishing finale to a prescient series . . . Ali Smith brilliantly weaves strands of joy and celebration to end her Seasonal Quartet' Irish Times
