Product description

Review

"Very beautiful, surprising and evocative." --Simonetta Agnello Hornby

"This is an enchanting slow burn of a novel; a notable debut. Vescina's voice is admirably clear, her descriptions lucid, and her characters are human to the core." --Rachel Seiffert

"That Summer In Puglia is rich in insights into human emotions. It's the tale of the disastrous course even a great love can take if bitterness is allowed to prevail and chances of forgiveness are rejected, but also of the miracles it can work if profoundly experienced and expressed. Valeria Vescina's style has the fluidity of the great European novelists. Her characterisations are at once vivid and poetic, and the plot ever-surprising. Finally, here is the discovery through literature of Puglia, with its remarkable synthesis of Mediterranean history and cultures - and how appropriate, as this is, deep down, Greek tragedy. " --Edoardo Winspeare
