'Delicious' Nigella Lawson 'Clever and beguiling' Guardian 'Sublime and immersive' Jojo Moyes

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

Samson is an intensely sensual writer, conjuring up blue skies, the tang of wild herbs, the vivid splash of bougainvillea ... As good as a Greek holiday, and may be the closest we get this year ― Financial Times

As dreamily nostalgic as Cohen's song Famous Blue Raincoat -- Alex Preston ― Observer, New Year Highlights

Sleazy, evocative, beautiful and entertaining -- Stuart Turton ― Guardian Summer Reading Picks

A thoroughly enjoyable drama of hedonism, enchantment and emotional beastliness ― Times Literary Supplement

A coming of age story set among a group of artists and poets, including Leonard Cohen, on the Greek island of Hydra in 1960. She is so good at mentally indelible imagery -- Jojo Moyes ― Guardian

This well-crafted novel beautifully captures the texture of a halcyon age in which anything seems possible ― Mail on Sunday

Spellbinding . An immersive read, steeped in nostalgia. Samson's poetic prose is so evocative that, by the end, you find yourself googling those entrancing images of Hydra, 1960, just to wallow further in the poignancy of it all ― Vanity Fair

The novel has a lightly worn heft to it, as it probes freedom and creativity . By the end of this enjoyable novel, which makes vivid an interesting moment and place, you discover people have paid a price - a heavy one - for that freedom in the sun ― The Times

Samson recreates one heady summer there with impeccably ripening prose .This is a slow, deliberately languorous novel that mixes real-life figures with fictional counterparts. It is sunbaked, stewed in alcohol, and wonderfully gossipy ― i paper

Intoxicating ... Highly accomplished ... A testament to Samson's transportive prose ― Spectator
