Curtis Brown Summer Bestsellers

We're proud to announce this week's bestsellers featuring a number of Curtis Brown (and ICM) authors who have been keeping the UK's summer reading material well stocked.

David Nicholls' Sweet Sorrow takes us back to the late 1990s for a tragicomedy about falling in young love and teenage lust to The Secret Hours by Santa Montefiore which whisks us away to Ireland, returning to the spirited and mysterious Deverill family, where we learn the story of the lesser-known Arethusa Deverill.

Lisa Taddeo's Three Women (on behalf of ICM) is the compelling true story of three women coming to terms with their desires, unspoken thoughts and unmet needs and Deborah Moggach's The Carer is a poignant reminder that life definitely does not stop for the elderly, as two siblings learn when they employ a carer for their father.
