Gritty and thought - provoking,
This review is from: The Turning (Paperback)
Don't think of this as a set of short stories, as characters spill from one story to another, illuminating both what you read and stories you have finished.
Winton writes about life on the other side of the tracks in Australia, with descriptions so vibrant that you feel the heat and the sweat on your skin. His characters are complex but totally believable, possibly because Winton challenges your perception of them by giving you a different viewpoint later.
