August, Paperback Book
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Ever since Aldous Jones careened over the handlebars of his bicycle in 1955 and landed next to Farmer Evans's first field, it has become a tradition for him to take his family camping in Wales.

Aldous has started to feel that a certain symbiosis has developed between their North London home and the Welsh village that they only ever see in August.

As the years pass, Aldous's family idyll starts to disintegrate and the farm becomes a place drenched in memory.

Loved this story of a family and their holidays in Wales. The characters are so odd, yet so believable that I wasn't surprised to find that the story is based very closely on the author's own life and family.

I felt slightly disappointed in this, although enjoyable I personally feel that the two following novels have more depth.
