Product description


Witty, hilarious, astringent, devastating - her impeccable style can do anything and with seemingly effortless ease (Neel Mukherjee)

‘One of Taylor’s best novels’ Rebecca Abrams, New Statesman

‘It’s smashing …When you’ve finished In a Summer Season, you are totally fired up to read every book that Taylor ever wrote’ Val Hennessy

Jane Austen, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Pym, Elizabeth Bowen - soul-sisters all (ANNE TYLER)

Her stories remain with one, indelibly, as though they had been some turning point in one's own experience (ELIZABETH BOWEN)

One of the most underrated novelists of the twentieth century (ANTONIA FRASER)

One of Taylor's best novels (NEW STATESMAN)

Book Description

In a Summer Season is one of Elizabeth Taylor's finest novels in which, in a moving and powerful climax, she reveals love to be the thing it is: beautiful, often funny, and sometimes tragic.
