Arctic Summer : Author of the 2021 Booker Prize-winning novel THE PROMISE Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


FROM THE BOOKER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE PROMISEShortlisted for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction 2015Sunday Times Barry Ronge Fiction PrizeUniversity of Johannesburg English Literary AwardNominated for the 2014 Folio PrizeIn 1912, the SS Birmingham approaches India.

On board is Morgan Forster, novelist and man of letters, who is embarking on a journey of discovery.

As Morgan stands on deck, the promise of a strange new future begins to take shape before his eyes.

The seeds of a story start to gather at the corner of his mind: a sense of impending menace, lust in close confines, under a hot, empty sky.

It will be another twelve years, and a second time spent in India, before A Passage to India, E.

M. Forster's great work of literature, is published. During these years, Morgan will come to a profound understanding of himself as a man, and of the infinite subtleties and complexity of human nature, bringing these great insights to his remarkable novel. At once a fictional exploration of the life and times of one of Britain's finest novelists - his struggle to find a way of living and being - and a stunningly vivid evocation of the mysterious alchemy of the creative process, Arctic Summer is a literary masterpiece, by one of the finest writers of his generation.
