Here are turnings of all kinds - changes of heart, nasty surprises, slow awakenings, sudden detours - where people struggle against the terrible weight of the past and challenge the lives they've made for themselves. Beautifully crafted, and as tender as they are confronting, these elegiac stories examine the darkness and frailty of ordinary people and celebrate the moments when the light shines through.

Tim Winton has published twenty books for adults and children, and his work has been translated into twenty-five languages. Since his first novel, An Open Swimmer, won the Australian/Vogel Award in 1981, he has won the Miles Franklin Award four times (for Shallows, Cloudstreet, Dirt Music and Breath) and twice been shortlisted for the Booker Prize (for The Riders and Dirt Music). He lives in Western Australia.From AudioFile:
This collection of interlocking stories chronicles all that life has to offer, both good and bad, in a Western Australian coastal town. They are spare, emotional vignettes that focus on choices and the consequences that come from them. Two narrators, Humphrey Bower and Caroline Lee (both Australian), guide us expertly through this maze of humanity. Their voices, alternating haphazardly throughout the stories, are strong, clear, and emotional without being overwrought or dramatic. Bower exudes both the vigor of the Aussie male and the fragility that undercuts it. Lee's characters project the toughness they need to survive but also the tenderness they wish Bower's males would exhibit. Their readings complement and expand the text, making this a unique listening experience. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
