New York. 1995. Scribner. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 377 pages. June 1995. hardcover. Jacket design by John Fontana. Inscribed by The Author. ISBN: 0684802961. inventory # 21325. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Fred Scully is in another country, a ‘desert Irishman’ far from home. After two long years of traveling through Europe, he decided to move his family from Australia to western Ireland. Scully arrived weeks ahead of his family to renovate the old farmhouse they’d bought in the shadow of a castle in County Offally. Now, at the gate of Shannon’s international airport, he anxiously awaits the arrival of his pregnant wife and seven-year-old daughter, envisioning a new life ahead, a fresh start. He has waited for and worried about this for months. He is a man who does not like being alone. The plane lands, the glass doors to the terminal slide open and his daughter emerges. Alone. There is no note, no word of explanation from his wife, only the mute silence of his stunned child. In an instant, Scully’s life goes down in flames. THE RIDERS, written with the grace and clarity that are hallmarks of Tim Winton’s much-acclaimed fiction, is a story of a marriage in our time. A love-crazed odyssey to the underside of the male psyche, it is a powerful, dark journey in search of a woman vanished. . Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: The prize-winning Australian author of Cloudstreet returns with a novel of obsession and emotional torment about a man's tormented search for his wife, who disappears without explanation, leaving him with a seven-year-old daughter. 15,000 first printing. Tour.

From the Publisher: After traveling through Europe for two years, Scully and his wife Jennifer wind up in Ireland, and on a mystical whim of Jennifer's, buy an old farmhouse which stands in the shadow of a castle. While Scully spends weeks alone renovating the old house, Jennifer returns to Australia to liquidate their assets. When Scully arrives at Shannon Airport to pick up Jennifer and their seven-year-old daughter, Billie, it is Billie who emerges -- alone. There is no note, no explanation, not so much as a word from Jennifer, and the shock has left Billie speechless. In that instant, Scully's life falls to pieces.

The Riders is a superbly written and a darkly haunting story of a lovesick man in a vain search for a vanished woman. It is a powerfully accurate account of marriage today, of the demons that trouble relationships, of resurrection found in the will to keep going, in the refusal to hold on, to stand still. The Riders is also a moving story about the relationship between a loving man and his tough, bright daughter.
