Summer Things

Summer Things

Howard’s getting it in the neck at home. Dotty isn’t getting any at all. And Norman’s getting it at work – from the girl under his desk.

What they need is a holiday to let off a bit of steam. And steam is just what they get. As couples of varied ages, class and income set up their deckchairs on the beach, the scene is set for a few crossed wires, a wave of embarrassment and a lot of sand between the sheets.

Sun, sea, sex, squabbling: Joseph Connolly’s bestselling novel goes straight to the secret heart of that sticky farce of lust and snobbery: the British seaside.

Reviews

'The author has seen the world of human misery in a grain of seaside sand and his title is deeply, bleakly ironic ... Viciously funny' Daily Telegraph.
Daily Telegraph
'This is not a book about love, but a book about illicit, breathless, self-absorbed couplings and that kind of panic-ridden snobbery so dear to the English middle-class mentality, all described with gusto and distaste' Literary Review.

'Connolly has established himself as a very English comic author, in the tradition of P.G. Wodehouse' The Times.
