Description
In Tim Winton's first collection of short stories, the Australian outback he paints, though filled with the trappings of home and family, is often harsh and disturbing, inhabited by isolated, unforgiving characters. Evident in a young girl's violent temper once the eggs she has so jealously guarded finally hatch, or in the careless indifference of the woman stepping over a soldier's spread-eagled body, this world is a place where casual brutality and unexpected death are never far from the surface, where dysfunction and disorder constantly threaten the equilibrium. But there is compassion and beauty here too, in the brush of a father's hand against his young son's cheek, or the neighbors who wait patiently to celebrate the arrival of a new baby.

"Tim Winton is the real thing: a writer who can photograph a thought and pluck out the beat of a soul on a washing line."Scotland on Sunday
