Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ms. Adams [has a] gift for making her characters so changeable, so vulnerable, so universally familiar.... As they help one another through a long parade of crises, some of them truly character-building, Ms. Adams's story develops an increasing power that can be created only incrementally. And by the novel's end...its message of friendship, love and loyalty hits home."―Janet Maslin, New York Times

"Moving.... Bittersweet and compassionate.... Adams casts a keen eye on that slow shock of the 20s, when even the most exceptional young people discover they are just...people, with jobs and partners decided as much by happenstance as by desire."Sophie McManus, Washington Post

"[An] irresistible debut novel.... A crackerjack storyteller who deeply inhabits her characters-deploying pitch-perfect dialogue to poignant and hilarious effect-Adams uses the conventions of the form to examine larger ideas about class and commerce, art and science, friendship and family at the time of the most recent fin de siècle."Joanna Rakoff, New York Times Book Review

"A testament to the power of friendship and love, this is a beautiful coming-of-age story about the intimacy of long-term relationships against the changing landscape of time."―Elizabeth Kiefer, Refinery 29

"Easy yet not insubstantial, this debut is a sweet toast to enduring friendship."―Meredith Turits, ELLE

"Like life, this breezy, charming novel about four college friends deepens and darkens as it moves through the years, presenting its characters with challenges and choices that test them in ways their younger selves couldn't imagine. INVINCIBLE SUMMER is the story of what happens when things get real."―Tom Perrotta, author of Little Children and The Leftovers

"A sophisticated yet fun novel about four friends venturing into adulthood. Alice Adams does a magnificent job of describing the way life's heartbreaks and ecstasies unfold over the course of 20 years."―Elin Hilderbrand, author of The Rumor

"Adulthood has never been so endearing."―Steph Opitz, Marie Claire

"INVINCIBLE SUMMER goes down as smoothly as the steady flow of wine knocked back by its disarming characters as they make their way not only into adulthood but through the last two decades of financial boom and bust, London's rave scene, and the Higgs boson particle. Be forewarned, though: It packs a punch. Alice Adams has important things to say about our times and the meaning of family."Anne Korkeakivi, author of An Unexpected Guest

"INVINCIBLE SUMMER is a novel that will have you running for the phone to call your old friends and reconnect. Alice Adams is a beautiful storyteller. She deftly weaves the ties that bind four friends over the course of their youth and into middle age with powerful threads of emotion. I loved the world of this book, and how Ms. Adams wrote the passing of time through her characters with delicacy and truth."―Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of All the Stars in the Heavens

About the Author

Alice Adams is half Australian but has lived in England for most of her life, growing up in a house without a TV and as a result becoming a voracious reader. Career-wise, she's done everything from waitressing to investment banking, and in addition to a BA in philosophy, she has a multitude of geeky math, finance, and computer qualifications. She lives in North London but escapes into the wilderness as often as possible. Invincible Summer is her first novel and she's hard at work on a second.
