An aging author and his wife are visited by a close friend from back east who they know is dying. After spending some cherished time together, they receive astonishing news. Their friend has been in a coma the last few days on the other side of the country and has just passed away.



“The journey of which Robert Nathan writes in his poignant and beautiful novel, ‘The Summer Meadows’ is through life and death, the ultimate all-containing mystery. It is a wise and deep tale, bound to raise the deepest emotions, for it touches with poetic power every aspect of human experience, hope and fear, aspiration and outcome, love and friendship. Not a wasted word is in these pages, which is a hallmark of the poet turned master story teller.”
