In Cold New Climate, Isobel Wohl’s precise, observant prose lays bare the ever-shifting rules by which we try to conduct our lives.

Lydia is unsettled in her New York life. She takes herself away to Greece, secure in the belief that her much older partner Tom will be there on her return. However, when she comes back, she discovers he’s fallen in love with someone else. When she reconnects with Tom’s teenage son Caleb, all three lives are recast in shocking and devastating ways. Meanwhile there are greater changes happening in the world at large, changes over which they have even less control.

‘A surprising, startling reading experience, Cold New Climate is marvellously attuned to the complexities of the personal and political. Isobel Wohl’s writing is nuanced, super-observant and, perhaps best of all, totally propulsive.’ Wendy Erskine

‘Stylish but true, oblique but heartbreaking – it’s a novel people will be reading and falling in love with and re-reading for many years to come. Clarice Lispector, Jean Rhys, F. Scott Fitzgerald – this is the quality of the company Isobel Wohl is keeping.’ Toby Litt
