Tim Winton

Blueback is an achingly beautiful story about family, belonging, and living a life in tune with the environment, from Tim Winton, one of Australia’s best-loved authors. Blueback is an achingly beautiful story about family, belonging, and living a life in tune with the environment, from Tim Winton, one of Australia’s best-loved authors. ‘Winton … convince s us of the preciousness of our oceans not through lectures but through his characters’ steady wonder.‘ New York Times Abel Jackson’s boyhood belongs to a vanishing world. On an idyllic stretch of coast whose waters teem with fish, he lives a simple, tough existence. It’s just him and his mother in the house at Longboat Bay, but Abel has friends in the sea, particularly the magnificent old groper he meets when diving. As the years pass, things change, but one thing seems to remain constant- the greed of humans. When the modern world comes to his patch of sea, Abel wonders what can stand in its way. Blueback is a deceptively simple allegory about a boy who matures through fortitude and who finds wisdom through living in harmony with all forms of life. 'In true fable style, this is a simple story, but one so beautiful, poignant and moving it is impossible to ignore.’ Daily Telegraph
