The Drama: The Vacationers by Emma Straub

This novel follows the story of the dysfunctional Posts, an American family who plan to escape the tensions of their home in Manhattan with a two-week break on an idyllic Spanish island.

Sunlit mountains, beautiful beaches and tapas washed down with sangria may sound like the perfect holiday but all doesn’t go to plan. The simmering tensions that the family hoped to leave back in New York eventually come to the boil and the family are forced to face their issues head on.

Fresh, witty and honest, The Vacationers is a magnificent novel of marriage, friendship, betrayal and loyalty. It’s light but thought provoking - ideal for lazy afternoons relaxing on deck.

The Vacationers by Emma Straub, £7.99, Penguin Random House
