The Summer Reader 2017


Literature never gets old, which is why our third annual books issue has retained its contemporary relevance. In Summer 2017 we compiled a compendium of the summer’s most important new releases, which remain as compelling and distinctive as they did in the moment they were published.

  • Barbara EplerMichael Mack and Nesrine Malik present a selection of extracts and share their thoughts on their favourite new releases
  • Photographer Hellen van Meene’s fantastic foray “beyond the wardrobe”
  • A conversation with the iconic book designer Peter Mendelsund
  • Interviews with Ottessa Moshfegh, Stuart Jeffries and Gwendoline Riley
