Prospect‘s new 16-page Summer Fiction Special is an invitation to catch up with some of our finest contemporary authors.
Summer is the time of the year when we have the chance to step back and reflect on the way we live now. Great fiction is one of the most stimulating ways to help such reflection.
In the wide-ranging opening essay, literary critic Jane Shilling identifies the recent trend for fiction about family life. Award-winning novelist Tessa Hadley has written an exclusive short story entitled “Flight,” about an Englishwoman living in America who flies home to visit her sister, and finds her life has not turned out the way she wanted. We also offer our pick of the best new novels from this year, including Karl Ove Knausgaard, Nick Hornby and Anne Tyler.
