Set in a number of places around the world, from the Nullarbor to the Catskills, the stories in this collection are so different and yet each shows us a person negotiating their place in the world as they stagger towards a critical transformation. Despite Rowe’s characters facing hard and gritty truths, there is a beauty to her stories that reveals the poetry of ordinary lives. George Saunders, a master of the short story himself, once said that “when you read a short story, you come out a little more aware and a little more in love with the world around you.” Here Until August certainly has this effect.
