From the internationally acclaimed, Booker-shortlisted author of Dirt Music and The Riders comes a mesmerizing collection of overlapping stories set in small-town Western Australia. These searing and evocative stories examine the frailty of ordinary people and illuminate the turnings in life--the sudden detours, awkward awakenings and mid-life regrets--where each character must face the realization that the past always lives on in the present. This portrait of a starkly beautiful landscape and the characters that people it is a perfect mirror for Winton's remarkable imagination.
