Summer Visit



Summer Visit is a collection of three novellas by the distinguished Australian poet Antigone Kefala.

‘Intimacy’, charts the breakdown of a marriage. ‘Conversations with Mother’ is a portrait of grief. Between these stories of crisis, ‘Summer Visit’ speaks of memory and the past as a living force.

All exhibit the remarkable combination of clarity, intensity and spareness, for which Kefala is renowned.
