Synopsis

Shortlisted for the Booker Prize, Dirt Music by Tim Winton is a novel about the power of love.

Georgie Jutland is a mess. At forty, with her career in ruins, she finds herself stranded with a man she doesn't love and two kids whose dead mother she can never replace. She spends her days in isolated tedium and her nights in a blur of vodka and self-recrimination. Until, early one morning, she sees a shadow drifting up the beach below her house. It is Luther Fox, an outcast, a man on the run from his own past. And now here he is stepping into Georgie’s life. He brings hope, maybe even love, but also danger . . .

Generous, earthy and raw . . . Mysteries don’t come more heartfelt than this

Winton keeps writing fiction that makes the novel feel alive to a continent of possibilities
