Lose yourself in the legendary Edna O’Brien’s simmering tale of a woman rediscovering herself on the French Riviera … ‘The taboo-breaking, the fabulous prose – there’s no one like Edna O’Brien … Beautiful.’ Anne Enright ‘Novels of heart-breaking empathy, rigorous honesty and peerless beauty.’ Eimear McBride’Brilliant and brave.’ Ann Patchett’A treasure.’ New York TimesSeparated from her husband and young son, Ellen leaves behind the loneliness of London for a new life of excitement and sexual freedom:a ‘jaunt into iniquity’ on the gorgeous French Riviera.

However, she soon discovers that independence blurs into loneliness, especially when she receives some heart-breaking news … Banned in several countries on first publication, Edna O’Brien’s August is a Wicked Month is a shimmering, sensual tale of a woman rediscovering herself – and it feels just as glorious, radical, and escapist as today.
