Summer : An Anthology for the Changing Seasons, Paperback / softback Book

Summer : An Anthology for the Changing Seasons Paperback / softback

Edited by Melissa Harrison

Paperback / softback

Description

Summer is a season of richness: gold against blue; sun dazzle on water; sweet fragrance, and the sound of insects, filling the air.

We feel the sand between our toes, or the grass beneath our feet.

In these long, warm days, languid and sensual, we reconnect with the natural world, revelling in light and scent and colour once more. Capturing the high point of the year's progress, Summer presents prose and poetry spanning eight hundred years.

Featuring new contributions by Simon Barnes, Michael McCarthy and Esther Woolfson, classic extracts from the work of Charles Dickens, Mary Webb and Philip Larkin, and diverse new nature writing from across the UK, this vibrant and evocative collection will inspire you to go out and enjoy the pleasures of summer.
