'Taut and insightful... Beautifully written.' Jackie Law, neverimitate

'For me, that is exactly what The Last Summer is about – trying to understand the people around you and realising that you have precisely no power to do so. It is amazing that in such a short novel, Huch has accomplished something that many authors take hundreds of pages to say.' INWORDSANDINK

'A taut psychological drama... Ricarda Huch should be up there alongside the Mann brothers and Hermann Hesse.' Bookblast
