Reviews

"Eyrie is a dark but dazzling study of people ance palces on the edge . . . in [Winton's] hands, with his distinctive Australian voice and vernacular, this disquieting story also has the power to surprise and delight--perhaps even to inspire." --Allison McCullough, The New York Times Book Review

"The beginning of the book is fueled . . . by the astonishing, limber prose that has made Winton one of the most celebrated writers in Australia . . . Of the many achievements of this extraordinary novel, one of the most remarkable is the way the the past gradually spills into the present . . . In a book full of teriffic characters and sharply drawn relationships, the most memorable is the bond between Keely and the seemingly doomed Kai. It's heartbreaking." --Porter Shreve, Washington Post

"A brilliant tour-de-force." --Adam Woog, The Seattle Times

"Fans of Mr. Winton will expect lucid characterisation and atmospheric prose; the author finds poetry in the grimmest scenes. Eyrie has all this plus a page-turning narrative that tumbles inexorably towards its ending. This is Tim Winton in searingly good form." --The Economist
