Feb 20 August is a Wicked Month by Edna O’Brien

I enjoyed August Is A Wicked Month not just because it was so well written – as all of Edna O’Brien’s works are, but also because I felt that its themes were universal. All of us at some point have wanted to escape our lives, to do something reckless and dangerous, to have a fling, to spontaneously go on vacation. But every decision we make has a consequence, and so, while this novel is a sad story – it is infinitely approachable in its universality.
