Summerwater [9781529035438]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'Sharp, searching, thoroughly imagined, utterly of the moment . . . it throws much contemporary writing into the shade' Hilary Mantel

Set in an isolated Scottish cabin park, Summerwater takes place over the course of one long, bleakly rainy summer's day.

A group of optimistic holidaymakers are thrown into close quarters at a lochside chalet park, bored and trapped in their fading holiday rentals by the relentless downpour.

One particular family begins to rub the others the wrong way and gradually tensions rise as the hours creep by, but no one can imagine the events that lie ahead as darkness falls.

Sharp, devastating and timely, Sarah Moss's newest novel is the perfect follow up to her Women's Prize longlisted Ghost Wall.
