Description
The author of The Riders and Dirt Music, both shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Tim Winton is at his most visceral and powerful in this boy's vision of the world—the dreamed, the lived, the imagined, and the sharp consolations of faith. At 12 years old, Morton—Ort for short—is not quite a child, but not yet an adult. His isolated outback world is a combination of boyish innocence, adolescent confusion, and burgeoning awareness, until his father is seriously injured in a car crash. But it is the arrival of preacher Henry Warburton, just when Ort's family most needs a helping hand, that brings the greatest change to his world.

"Towards the end of the novel Ort prays for a miracle: 'Funny when you talk to God. He's like the sky.... Never says anything. But you know he listens.' Though God hasn't answered Ort yet, Mr. Winton convinces us he might."—NYTimes

"The great strength of the novel is in the way the grotesque contrasts and parallels in human life are spread out, examined and accepted."—LATimes
