Bas Kast's »Der Ernährungskompass« (The Diet Compass) was the most successful non-fiction book of 2018: his guide to healthy eating was eagerly read by millions, and became a worldwide bestseller. With »Das Buch eines Sommers« (The Book of a Summer), the science journalist reinvents himself and surprises the public with a vivid and philosophical story that shakes the reader up.

In the summer of his life, Nicolas has a dream. He wants to become a writer like his uncle. But life gets in the way: he has to take over his father's firm, and his dream gives way to responsibility. The result is loads of appointments and obligations. When his uncle dies, Nicolas loses the one person who believed in him. But to his surprise, he finds the key to help him become the person he really is in the most unlikely place.
