In Charlotte Wood’s stunning new novel The Weekend, four older women with a lifelong friendship of the best kind are shattered when Sylvie, a member of their unbreakable group, dies.
Without Sylvie to maintain the group’s delicate equilibrium, frustrations build and painful memories press in. Sharply observed and excruciatingly funny, this is a jewel of a book—a celebration of tenderness and friendship that is nothing short of a masterpiece.
Charlotte will be touring Australia in October to celebrate her new release, with a raft of literary events in the works. The first one locked in is listed below, with many more to come!
