These stories are a wonderful introduction to his quirky fictional world – gutsy, funny, lyrical but unpretentious.
Winton . . . writes with a muscular looseness which is suited perfectly to the people and places he is describing.
Tim Winton has cracked something essential about modern Australia: how to find meaning in the intimate and terrible parts of contemporary family life, set against a landscape which is inhumanly vast.
The vividness and clarity that Mr Winton responds to in nature are also beautifully embodied in his own writing.
