Get 50% off Summer Without Men!

20 July 2011

What would you do if your husband of 30 years asked you for a ‘pause’ to have an affair with a younger French woman? That’s the situation facing the protagonist of Siri Hustvedt’s The Summer Without Men. But rather than scream, shout and throw out every one of his possessions (because come on, you would…) Miri retreats to her mother’s home to spend the summer in solitary confinement. And, you guessed it, without any men. Teaching poetry to a group of teenage girls and joining the book club of five old age pensioners, Miri muses on her relationship. It’s beautifully written – a mixture of poetry and lyrical prose – and will leave you feeling bittersweet but ultimately upbeat about marriage. We recommend reading with a glass of dry white wine in hand…
