Publisher Description

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 isolation 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. Full of unforgettable characters, Dirt Music is Tim Winton's classic love song to land and place. The number one bestseller '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
