About the Author

Tara June Winch is the Wiradjuri author of novel Swallow the Air and short story collection After the Carnage. For her first novel, she was named a Sydney Morning Herald Best Young Australian Novelist and received mentorship from Nobel Prize winner Wole Soyinka as part of the prestigious Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative. She was born in Australia in 1983 and currently lives in France with her family.


Already a best-seller in Australia, Winch's second novel is a clear-eyed look at the experiences of native people and the ways in which history is inherited through generations.--Booklist
The Peoples, languages and wildlife of Australia have been purposely decimated for a great many years. The history of this vast land is a tragic one and this young Indigenous author has taken it on in a graceful act of retrieval and witness. The dictionary and use of Wiradjuri words is transporting. Birrabuwawanha--to return, to come back. The Yield is a fine novel, and one not without hope.--Joy Williams, author of Pulitzer Prize finalist The Quick and the Dead
Take courage when you read this book. You'll need it. Winch asks big questions of this country. Is the answer within us?--Bruce Pascoe, author of Dark Emu
The humorous undercurrent to some of Winch's short stories has no place here, and this is a more serious work than her previous books - but while she may have developed a more sophisticated style, her work is no less vivid, and this is an astonishingly elegant and powerful second novel.--The Sydney Morning Herald
The Yield sings up language, history, home, blood - all the important stuff.--Paul Kelly, author of How to Make Gravy
Reap the wisdom this book yields.--The Saturday Paper
Unmissable.--The Guardian
A groundbreaking novel for black and white Australia.--Richard Flanagan, Man Booker Prize winning author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North
A beautifully written novel that puts language at the heart of remembering the past and understanding the present.--Kate Morton, internationally bestselling author of The Clockmaker's Daughter
Mesmerising and important.--Melissa Lucashenko, 2019 Miles Franklin award-winning author of Too Much Lip
A work of immense scope and sensitivity. ---Jessie Cole, author of Deeper Water
The Yield is the work of a major talent. It hypnotises with its lyricism, with the juxtaposition of horror and hope, and the candid look at family, country and history. It's a work to be savoured, to be enjoyed in the sun on a winter's day, and then to be shared--as widely as possible!--Madelaine Dickie, National Indigenous Times
