Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Georgie Jutland has lost her way. Living with a fisherman she doesn't love, feeling alienated from her neighbours, she spends her nights in a blur of vodka and pointless loitering in cyberspace. Until one morning, in the boozy pre-dawn gloom, she looks up from her computer screen to see a shadow on the beach below her. Luther Fox, the local poacher. Jinx. Outcast.

So begins an unlikely alliance. Set in the wild landscape of Western Australia, this is a novel about the odds of breaking with the past, a journey across landscapes within and without, and a love story about people stifled by grief, regret and lost dreams.

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

'Winton is not a great Australian novelist; he is a great novelist, full stop' The Times

Synopsis:

Georgie Jutland is a mess. At 40, with her career in ruins, she finds herself stranded in White Point with a fisherman she doesn't love and two kids whose dead mother she can never replace. Then one morning she looks up from her computer screen and sees a shadow lurking on the beach below.

Synopsis:

Literary fiction from a highly respected Australian novelist. Shortlisted for the 2002 Booker Prize. A novel of lives stifled by grief and regret, set in the wild landscape of Western Australia. "Written in seemingly effortless prose that never puts a foot wrong" "Sunday Times".
