Dirt Music

After his family is killed in an accident, illegal fisherman Luther Fox tries to forget his pain, but when he meets Georgie Jutland, the wife of West Point, Australia’s most prosperous fisherman, Fox begins to dream again. Set in the wild landscape of Western Australia, this is a novel about the odds of breaking with the past, a love story about people stifled by grief or regret, whose dreams are lost, whose hopes have dried up. It’s a journey across landscapes within and without, about the music that sometimes arises from the dust.

The Turning

Tim Winton 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.
