Description

From the internationally acclaimed and best-selling author of Dirt Music and Cloudstreet comes an outstanding work of fiction - one of the publishing events of the year Tim Winton is undisputedly one of the finest storytellers working in the English language. Now he gives us seventeen brilliant, overlapping stories of second thoughts and mid-life regret - extraordinary tales of ordinary people from ordinary places. Here are turnings of all kinds - changes of heart, nasty surprises, slow awakenings, sudden detours - where people struggle against the terrible weight of the past and challenge the lives they've made for themselves. Brilliantly crafted, and as tender as it is confronting, The Turning dissects and celebrates the moments when the light shines through.
