August Falling

Les Zig

The past.

Sometimes we can’t escape it.

After a bad break-up, August is trying to piece his life back together. It’s not perfect – his flat is small, he works in a call centre, he can’t finish the book he’s working on, and he’s hopelessly awkward when it comes to relationships.

When August meets Julie, he finds she’s everything he isn’t – confident, composed, and purposeful, despite her troubled childhood. With her, August finally feels he can be himself.

But Julie has a secret – one that threatens to plummet August right back into the miseries of his past.


“Les Zig’s latest novel is a strong composition, marked by well defined characters and thought provoking themes.” – Amanda Barrett

Les Zig - Author of Just Another Week in Suburbia, a 2017 Must-Read Literary Novel.

Les has been telling stories since he was a kid, lying to get out of trouble. As a teenager, he worked out he could put his imagination to use telling stories, although this took a number of different forms. As he’s grown older, he’s had stories and articles published in various print and digital journals, screenplays optioned, and written one whole poem.

He’s now interested in exploring the human psyche — from the fears, quirks, and neuroses that drive us, to the dynamics of how people interact and react, how the world around them influences and sometimes predetermines their choices, and who they inevitably become.

Les is the author of young adult novel PrideJust Another Week in Suburbia is his debut adult fiction and was launched at Melbourne Writers’ Festival 2017.

More about the author

“Les Zig’s latest novel is a strong composition, marked by well defined characters and thought provoking themes.”

“We need more stories like this one.”

“One of my favourite things about Zig’s book is that his narrative reflects the unpredictable and random timing of life.”

August Falling is a refreshing read within the context of the often over-stylised drama-romance genre this novel sometimes pokes fun at.”
