Smith is in a class of her own' Nicola Sturgeon In the present, Sacha knows the world's in trouble. Her brother Robert just is trouble.
Their mother and father are having trouble. Meanwhile the world's in meltdown - and the real meltdown hasn't even started yet. In the past, a lovely summer.
A different brother and sister know they're living on borrowed time. This is a story about people on the brink of change. They're family, but they think they're strangers.
So: where does family begin? And what do people who think they've got nothing in common have in common? Summer. 'The first great corona virus novel - a book to savour, a literary tour de force that captures the nation's psyche exquisitely' Evening Standard
