Tommaso has escaped discovery for thirty years – but a young private investigator, Will, has tracked him down. Tommaso asks him to pretend never to have found him. To persuade Will, he recounts the story of his life and his great love. In the process, he comes to recognise his true role in the events which unfolded, and the legacy of unresolved grief. Now he’s being presented with a second chance – but is he ready to pay the price? That Summer in Puglia is a tale of loss, self-deceit and the power of love in its many forms. The Southern Italian region of Puglia provides an ideal setting: its layers of history are integral to the story, an excavation of a man’s past.

‘An enchanting slow burn of a novel; a notable debut.’ - Rachel Seiffert

'Very beautiful, surprising and evocative.' - Simonetta Agnello Hornby

‘Finally, here is the discovery through literature of Puglia, with its remarkable synthesis of Mediterranean history and cultures.’ - Edoardo Winspeare
