New York Times review of Summerlong

We reviewed Summerlong over at Green Man Review but this fine Autumn morning I’d like to send you over to the New York Times, yes The Grey Lady herself, for N.K. Jemisen’s review of this splendid novel in which she sums up her review in this manner: ‘It’s a rare story of summer that feels like the summer — like dreamy intense passions rising and arcing and then spinning away; like beauty underlaid with a tinge of sadness because it is ephemeral. Beagle has captured that seasonal warmth here, beautifully, magically.’

About Cat Eldridge


I’m the publisher of this website which is all about Peter Beagle. Email me here if you’ve got any questions.

I’ve met him but once over dinner — he’s quite witty and charming in person.

At Green Man Review, my other site, he’s the only writer that we like so much that two editions were done on him and his works.

My favorite works by him are Tamsin, Giant Bones, Summerlong which I first read in draft a long time ago and In Calabria.
