Erica is eighteen and ready for freedom. It’s the summer of 1960 when she lands on the sun-baked Greek island of Hydra where she is swept up in a circle of bohemian poets, painters, musicians, writers and artists, living tangled lives. Life on their island paradise is heady, dream-like, a string of seemingly endless summer days.

But nothing can last forever.

‘A surefire summer hit … At once a blissful piece of escapism and a powerful meditation on art and sexuality’ — Observer

‘Heady armchair escapism … An impressionistic, intoxicating rush of sensory experience’ — Sunday Times

‘If summer was suddenly like a novel, it would be like this one. Immaculate.’ — Andrew O’Hagan
