About the Author
Tim Winton is widely considered one of the greatest living Australian writers. He has published twenty-four books, and his work has been translated into twenty-eight languages. Since his first novel, An Open Swimmer, won the Australian/Vogel Award in 1981, he has won the Miles Franklin Award four times (for Shallows, Cloudstreet, Dirt Music, and Breath) and twice been shortlisted for the Booker Prize (for The Riders and Dirt Music). He lives in Western Australia.
"Winton is a one-man band of genius." --Carolyn See, Los Angeles Times

"Nothing short of magnificent...A wonderful read." --Andrew Yule, Time Out (New York)
"One of my favorite novels." --Nancy Pearl
