A #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
Selected as one of the books of the summer by Vogue and Marie Claire

'The Weekend triumphantly brings to life the honest, inner lives of women'
Independent

'Glorious... Charlotte Wood joins the ranks of writers such as Nora Ephron, Penelope Lively and Elizabeth Strout'
Guardian

'Uncompromising and savagely funny... There is endless pleasure to be found in the candour and compassion Wood brings to bear on femininity and female friendship'
Metro

'Painfully comic, frequently heartbreaking and beautifully insightful'
Observer

'A lovely, lively, intelligent, funny book'
Tessa Hadley

'Friendship, ambition, love, sexual politics and death: it's all here in one sharp, funny, heartbreaking and gorgeously-written package. I loved it'
Paula Hawkins

'One of those deceptively compact novels that continues to open doors in your mind long after the last page'
Patrick Gale

Sylvie, Jude, Wendy and Adele have a lifelong friendship of the best kind: loving, practical, frank and steadfast. But when Sylvie dies, the ground shifts dangerously for the remaining three.

These women couldn't be more different: Jude, a once-famous restaurateur with a spotless life and a long-standing affair with a married man; Wendy, an acclaimed feminist intellectual; Adele, a former star of the stage, now practically homeless.

Struggling to recall exactly why they've remained close all these years, the grieving women gather for one last weekend at Sylvie's old beach house. But fraying tempers, an elderly dog, unwelcome guests and too much wine collide in a storm that brings long-buried hurts to the surface - a storm that will either remind them of the bond they share, or sweep away their friendship for good.
