Axel Hacke

A House for Many Summers

All the things that can happen when you stop viewing a holiday destination simply as such, a place you go to and then leave behind – a backdrop for recreation – and instead take the place seriously and try to understand it. That’s where the magic of this book lies and it’s sure to have a lasting effect on its readers.

Many people dream of a house in the Mediterranean, of being away yet at one with themselves. But those who in fact own such a house have different dreams. They dream of… well, maybe of holidays?

In A House for many Summers, Axel Hacke writes about the magic of a place you don’t necessarily have to be but where you really want to be. He tells stories of the people on an island, its landscape, of praying mantes, fakir pigeons, goats, olives, and a man shooting a wild boar from his marital bed. He writes of poems found stuck to street corners and the secrets of the Torre, an old tower that challenges its owners and occupants in ways they never expected. These stories let you feel the summer heat, the sand underneath your feet, the gentle sea breeze. They invite you to let your eyes wander over olive groves and let your gaze rest on the world’s most beautiful sunset but also on such peculiar questions as: what is it we’re really doing when we’re doing nothing?
