Written in 1963, the novel was not released during Frame’s lifetime most likely because she considered it too personal. The simple story follows one female writer to a country house to spend a weekend with a journalist and his wife. Frame spares the listener a country farce and treats the listener to a meditation on interiority, longing, and relation. This audiobook is recommended listening for a long, reflective journey.
Frame's observational prowess is apparent in Towards Another Summer in the vivid and heartbreaking passages about children and childhood and in Grace's growing awareness of the demanding forces of social convention.
