Description

Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2021 ‘A classic, but with contemporary urgency thumping through it.’ Claire-Louise Bennett, author of Pond From the acclaimed author of the Outline trilogy, a fable of human destiny and decline, enacted in a closed system of intimate, fractured relationships. Praise for the Outline trilogy: ‘A landmark in twenty-first-century English literature.’ Observer ‘Precise and haunting … Unforgettable.’ Jenny Offill ‘Achieves a kind of formal perfection … masterly.’ Sally Rooney ‘A work of great stunning beauty, deep insight, and great originality.’ Monica Ali A woman invites a famed artist to visit the remote coastal region where she lives, in the belief that his vision will penetrate the mystery of her life and landscape. Over the course of one hot summer, his provocative presence provides the frame for a study of female fate and male privilege, of the geometries of human relationships, and of the struggle to live morally between our internal and external worlds. With its examination of the possibility that art can both save and destroy us, Second Place is deeply affirming of the human soul, while grappling with its darkest demons.
