Praise

“Trevor is at the top of his game, and his game is better than anyone else’s.” – The Boston Globe

“This new novel… is a delicate sort of drama … but even so, a reader will have his heart in his mouth for the last 50 pages. And when that heart settles back down, it will be broken and satisfied…“Love and Summer,” the latest item from his venerable suitcase, is a thrilling work of art.” – The New York Times Book Review

“A subtle, surprising, sometimes agonizing tale of young love and passion.” – Julie Myerson

“Lingers in the memory as a beautiful meditation on love, belonging and the impossibility of escape” - Observer (London)

“Unbearably moving” - Spectator (London)

“A portrait of a brackish rural backwater, complete with family tragedy, sexual scandal, a repressed spinster and a half-crazed ancient retainer . . . delicate, elegiac, written with all Trevor’s trademark compassion and understanding'” - Daily Mail (London)

“A series of wrenching human dramas, which Trevor depicts with kindness and beautiful delicacy” - Sunday Telegraph (London)

“Brilliant. Trevor is the ultimate Old Master’.” - Evening Standard (London)

‘”A flawless work of art.” Independent on Sunday (London)
