Beschreibung

A #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
A book of the summer for The Times, Stylist, Vogue and Marie Claire

'The Weekend is so great I am struggling to find the words to do it justice... Wood is an agonisingly gifted writer: I am now going to read all her other books!'
Marian Keyes

'Radical... I really recommend it'
Pandora Sykes and Dolly Alderton on The High Low podcast

'Riveting'
Elizabeth Day

'A perfect, funny, insightful, novel about women, friendship, and ageing. I loved it'
Nina Stibbe

'What a terrific novel... Witty warm and wise'
Simon Mayo

'Charlotte Wood zooms in and makes these women increasingly sympathetic and individual in a way that really pulls on the heartstrings of the reader'
Mariella Frostrup

'Authentic, funny, brutally well-observed... As with the novels of Elizabeth Strout or Anne Tyler, these are characters not written to please, but to feel true'
The Sunday Times

'Glorious... Charlotte Wood joins the ranks of writers such as Nora Ephron, Penelope Lively and Elizabeth Strout'
Guardian

'The Weekend triumphantly brings to life the honest, inner lives of women'
Independent

'A lovely, lively, intelligent, funny book'
Tessa Hadley

'One sharp, funny, heartbreaking and gorgeously-written package. I loved it'
Paula Hawkins

'One of those deceptively compact novels that continues to open doors in your mind long after the last page'
Patrick Gale

'I'm not looking forward to much this locked-down summer but The Weekend is definitely an exception. The premise sems the perfect vehicle for Wood's unsparing observation, great gift for storytelling and total lack of sentimentality'
Eimear McBride

Sylvie, Jude, Wendy and Adele have a lifelong friendship of the best kind: loving, practical, frank and steadfast. But when Sylvie dies, the ground shifts dangerously for the remaining three.

These women couldn't be more different: Jude, a once-famous restaurateur with a spotless life and a long-standing affair with a married man; Wendy, an acclaimed feminist intellectual; Adele, a former star of the stage, now practically homeless.

Struggling to recall exactly why they've remained close all these years, the grieving women gather for one last weekend at Sylvie's old beach house. But fraying tempers, an elderly dog, unwelcome guests and too much wine collide in a storm that brings long-buried hurts to the surface - a storm that will either remind them of the bond they share, or sweep away their friendship for good.
