Publication of Summerwater

by Sarah Moss

We are delighted to announce that Summerwater, Sarah Moss's seventh novel, will be published by Picador in August 2020. The novel set in the Scottish Highlands over one day is a searing exploration of our capacity for both kinship and cruelty in these divided times. It is available for pre-order here.

Sharp, searching, thoroughly imagined, it is utterly of the moment, placing its anxious human dots against a vast indifferent landscape; with its wit and verve and beautiful organisation it throws much contemporary writing into the shade!
