Eschewing her stale life in London, one woman embarks on a journey
of independence and sexual liberation on the French Riviera
Separated from her husband, and with her young son away on a
camping trip, Ellen decides to flee her lonely London home, naively
pursuing "a jaunt into iniquity" along France's Mediterranean
coast. But will she find the escape she longs for, or the
entrapment she so deeply fears? In "August Is a Wicked Month," Edna
O'Brien's lyric, languid prose creates a character at once ordinary
and mythic, struggling to forge her own path not as a wife, mother,
mistress, or lover--but as simply, assuredly herself.
