Out of the blue, your husband of thirty years asks you for a pause in your marriage to indulge his infatuation with a young Frenchwoman.Do you:a) assume it's a passing affair and play alongb) angrily declare the marriage overc) crack upd) retreat to a safe haven and regroup?Mia Fredricksen cracks up first, then decamps for the summer to the prairie town of her childhood, where she rages, fumes, and bemoans her sorry fate as abandoned spouse. But little by little, she is drawn into the lives of those around her; her mother and her circle of feisty widows, her young neighbour, with two small children and a loud, angry husband; and the diabolical pubescent girls in her poetry class. By the end of the summer without men, wiser though definitely not sadder, Mia knows what she wants to fight for and on whose terms.Provocative, mordant, and fiercely intelligent, The Summer Without Men is a gloriously vivacious tragi-comedy about women and girls, love and marriage, and the age-old war between the sexes - a novel for our times by one of the most acclaimed American writers.

Praise for THE SORROWS OF AN AMERICAN . It is a rare writer who can both rouse the mind and grip the heart, and all the while provide the sensuous delights of image and language Lisa Appignanesi, Independent Beautifully thought through, deeply serious and enormously intelligent Jane Smiley, Guardian THE SORROWS OF AN AMERICAN feels like a very personal story and is all the more intimate for it...her skill lies in convincing the reader that we have seen right inside someone's soul Viv Groskop, Observer Richly textured...full of emotional as well as intellectual intensity Katie Owen, Sunday Telegraph For all its cerebral riches, this novel is composed with superb artistry, Hustvedt handles the numerous interlocking narratives with immense skill... It is proof of Hustvedt's talent that the terrors of this novel feel real John de Falbe, Literary Review This satisfying and emotionally rich follow-up to Ms Hustvedt's acclaimed WHAT I LOVED treads some similar themes: love and loss; the limits of perception; the drama of dreams; and the need to craft coherent stories from the unreliable fragments of memory. As with her previous novel, Ms Hustvedt's cerebral characters are tenderly drawn, wise and realistic ... a beautifully sincere examination of the grim traps of over-active minds Economist
