LoveReading Says

LoveReading Says

April 2011 Guest Editor Lesley Lokko on Tim Winton...

Another Australian who’s got a way with words. I read Dirt Music years ago and was blown away by his prose, his magical attention to details, landscapes, weather, emotions, particularly when things are going wrong between couples...just stunning. I then read Breath, a surfing-coming-of-age tale that’s about so much more than waves and wet dreams and decided that I wouldn’t let the Noughties end without a visit Down Under. I didn’t...and his descriptions, particularly of the Queensland coastline, were staggeringly accurate. A real gem of a writer.


The Lovereading view to appear soon...

Like all good literature this is a novel on many levels.  The exhilaration of danger, the power of the sea and the joy of youth challenging the elements sing from the pages, but beneath that is the pain of love, friendship and coming-of-age.  This is a beautiful book.

Comparison: Sebastian Barry, Peter Carey, Kate Grenville.
