The Natural Way of Things was a literary sensation and garnered its author accolades and awards. Charlotte Wood’s new novel, The Weekend, is equally impressive. A study in female friendship, loss and the challenges of ageing, the story unfolds over a Christmas weekend, as three old friends meet to sort through the house of the recently deceased fourth in their quartet. Full of sharp characterisations, keen observations and dry, sly humour, The Weekend is an absorbing, satisfying exploration of growing up and growing old.
