Dirt Music

Author(s): Tim Winton

Australian Literature

Georgie Jutland is a mess. At forty, with her career in ruins, she finds herself stranded in White Point with a fisherman she doesn't love and two kids whose dead mother she can never replace. Leached of all confidence, she spends her days in isolated tedium and her nights in a blur of vodka self-recrimination. One morning, in the boozy pre-dawn gloom, she sees, a shadow drifting up the beach below - a loner called Luther Fox, with danger in his wake.'Awe-inspiring . . . There are few finer stylists writing in English today.' Chicago Tribune'Wonderfully alive, inventive and assured.' The Age'Vividly written in a seemingly efffortless prose that never puts a foot wrong.' Sunday Times(London)'His prose retains the power to both to shock and to fill us with wonder.' The Bulletin'A compelling novel.' Times Literary Supplement'Beautiful, aching . . . compelling.' Washington Post
