The Summer Without Men by Siri Hustvedt $29.99 Sceptre
When a woman's husband asks for a "pause" in their marriage - specifically to pursue someone else - she is naturally shocked, and decides to retreat to the hometown of her childhood. She spends the summer teaching a poetry class, and as she becomes drawn into the lives of her class of wild girls and the lives of her mother's friends and neighbours, her anger morphs into something more reflective, but also more determined. Hustvedt writes with a rare clarity and honesty about emotional and intellectual matters and her books are a real pleasure. View details
