The Turning
The Turning: Stories | Tim Winton
Set on a coastal stretch of Western Australia, Tim Winton's stunning collection of connected stories is about turnings of all kinds -- changes of heart, slow awakenings, nasty surprises and accidents, sudden detours, resolves made or broken. Brothers cease speaking to each other, husbands abandon wives and children, grown men are haunted by childhood fears. People struggle against the weight of their own history and try to reconcile themselves to their place in the world. With extraordinary insight and tenderness, Winton explores the demons and frailties of ordinary people whose lives are not what they had hoped.

Listening to Tim Winton is a real privilege. The Turning is a book of his short stories vaguely connected. The language is simple and real...his descriptions of the coastline, townships and the people inhabiting them are beautiful. At times it‘s harsh, funny or sad. He makes a great walking companion along my road on a sunny winters day 🤗 🇦🇺#ozliterature #literaryfiction #audiowalk

CarolynM I loved this one. I read it for my IRL book group a few years ago. It was one of our best discussions ever because we could all relate it to our own experiences growing up. 4mo
