Synopsis The Summer House

"A work of astonishing illumination and delight…so edgy, bright and subversive about women’s inner lives and experience."—Francine Prose, New York Times Book Review

New York Times Notable Book

In The Summer House trilogy, three very different women, with three very distinct perspectives, narrate three very witty novels concerning one disastrous wedding in the offing.

The Clothes in the Wardrobe: Nineteen-year-old Margaret feels more trepidation than joy at the prospect of her marriage to forty-year-old Syl.

The Skeleton in the Cupboard: Syl’s mother, Mrs. Monro, doesn’t know quite what to make of her son’s life, but she knows Margaret should not marry him.

The Fly in the Ointment: And then there’s Lili, the free spirit who is determined that the wedding shall not happen, no matter the consequences.

"Her style is succinct, her humor dry…Unputdownable."—The Spectator

"The subtlety of James, the comedy of Spark, the penetrating—and the deep, unflinching—eye of Jane Austen."—Kirkus Reviews

"A witty and original writer."—Times Literary Supplement

"Inspired malice…Alice Thomas Ellis only bothers with the things that really bother her. That’s why her novel is short. That’s why her novel is good."—Victoria Glendinning in The Times

"It oozes enjoyable malice."—Observer

"The glitter comes from Alice Thomas Ellis’s mastery in keeping just the right distance between tones and undertones…This is a dark comedy."—Sunday Times
