The literary side of summer

The literary side of summer

We’ve had the mother of all winters so we deserve a little summer in our lives. And with summer holidays come lazy days at the beach and a chance to put your feet up and read, read, read

Skin Deep by Liz Nugent is a guilty rush of a novel; you’ll ignore your calls and lose sleep to finish it, which makes it the perfect holiday read. It’s the story of Cordelia Russell, a capricious, wily and ambitious Irish heroine, who starts the novel with a dead body in her apartment – not that she’s much bothered about it. Taking in an impoverished Irish childhood and themes of beauty and sociopathy, this book is Delia’s story and it’s a blast. The author of Unravelling Oliver and Lying In Wait has done it again. Priority reading.
