Description - Breath by Tim Winton
A new novel by Tim Winton - this is his first in seven years. Narrated by award-winning Australian actor, Dan Wyllie. A major international publishing event for 2008. Winner of The Age Book of the Year (Fiction) 2008. Breath is Tim Winton at his finest: a beautiful, gripping, deeply moving novel about our need for excitement and to push ourselves to the limits; about the power of the sea; and how ordinary people live with tragedy. Winton's latest novel is both a hymn to the beauty of flying on water and a sober assessment of the costs of losing one's balance, in every sense of the word.' - The New Yorker Darkly exhilarating.' - New York Times Book Review. This slender book packs an emotional wallop...Winton is well-known in Australia and should be here.' - Publishers Weekly. Tim Winton's newest novel offers an irresistible taste of oceanic communion.' - Los Angeles Times. Tender, incisive, sometimes brutal and always moving coming-of-age novel.' - Seattle Times. Winton is pitch perfect in capturing (but not exploiting) adolescent angst, and he describes surfing and the sea so thrillingly that even non-swimmers will want to plunge right in.' - Library Journal
