Format: Paperback
J L Carr didn't start writing until his fifties and this was his first published novel. Set in the 1950s, it describes the events of one summer's day in a small Northamptonshire town and shows how the lives of several people living there are changed by them. Although not as well known as his excellent A Month in the Country, it is a gripping and moving book which I just could not put down. Highly recommended.

Trademark observations of small town life. A much loved English formula, creating arestricted venue peopled with quirky, slightly off-beat characters. Within this framework Carr ploughs his customary furrows, re-exploring his service background. His style is as original as the man himself; like Dickens he makes full use of coincidence in bringing the protagonists along individual radii to meet at the plot's centre.
Having said that his is a small world it is clear that it is elastic enough to admit large themes. As Snow said, while the outcomes may be more nationally sigificant the motives at work in the Cabinet are the same as those operating in the Parish Council.

The 3rd review seems to refer to A Month in the Country - not A Day in Summer - don't believe these stars!!

Format: Paperback
Although a slim book it is an exceptionally good read. J L Carr only wrote a few books but all that I have read have been good. The book describes the restoration of a mural in a Yorkshire church and covers the interaction of the restorer with many people in the village. It sounds a rather unexciting book but the writing is excellent. My other favourite J L Carr book is 'A season in Sinji'.
