Review:

"A striking and impressive work...one of the most original novels of the year" (Observer)

"Simply one of the finest books about the pains and joys of family that I have ever read. The life of the Jones family glows like a barley-sugar window" (Time Out)

"A brilliantly written first novel... Spirit of time and place is lovingly remembered, steeped in nostalgia yet never sentimental... This is a novelist at work, glorifying in the old-fashioned virtues of plot and character...rendered in graceful prose that is beguiling and charming" (Mail on Sunday)

"Full of enjoyably acute social observation, August offers an absorbing account of a now vanished era of English life... Beguiling" (The Times)

"Gerard Woodward's first novel is founded on the brilliantly simple premise of portraying a family and its inexorable implosion through a succession of August camping holidays... A strong narrative, powered by cunningly withheld information and the threat of crisis" (Independent)

Book Description:

A stunning and unforgettable first novel from an award-winning poet.
