The Gentlemen is for Turning

Just finished Tim Winton’s The Turning. It’s amazing. Seventeen short stories about life on the WA coast, compellingly interweaved. I used to think that Peter Carey was Australia’s best living novellist. Now I think it’s Winton.

    Andrew –

    I’d suggest you take a wander through Winton’s early short stories…”Minimum of Two” is a fine set and my favourite of all his work.

    Winton has a fine way of throwing humanity onto the page without judgment or malice.
