“Shattering grief, a young person’s ability to manage everything and the power of the feeling of alienation. Pedro Carmona-Alvarez’ novel The weather changed, summer came and so on has all of this. It is also a great success.”


“The novel is a study of grief and its impact on the human beings it tears apart and wears down − the result is heartbreakingly superb.”
