9780143056294: Penguin Book of Summer Stories

Selected and Introduced by Alberto Manguel

Summer is the season for reading. Whether lying on the beach or curled up in a chair on the veranda, on a plane to faraway places or taking in the view from a hotel balcony, reading is the most decadent of summer activities. In The Penguin Book of Summer Stories, internationally acclaimed anthologist Alberto Manguel offers a wonderful collection of twenty brilliant stories set in the leisurely time of summer to enjoy and, at the same time, to follow other people’s mysterious lives or take part in someone else’s dramatic adventure.
