An epic novel of determination, survival, and the limits of the human spirit. This is Tim Winton as you’ve never read him before.

Two fugitives, a man and a child, drive all night across a stony desert. As dawn breaks, they roll into an abandoned mine site. From the vehicle they survey a forsaken place – middens of twisted iron, rusty wire, piles of sun-baked trash. They’re exhausted, traumatised, desperate now. But as a refuge, this is the most promising place they’ve seen. The child peers at the field of desolation. The man thinks to himself, this could work.

Problem is, they’re not alone.

So begins a searing, propulsive journey through a life whose central challenge is not simply a matter of survival, but of how to maintain human decency as everyone around you falls ever further into barbarism.

Tim Winton is the author of 30 books. He is a four-time winner of the Miles Franklin Award; he has been twice shortlisted for the Booker Prize. His work has been widely translated and adapted for film, television, stage and radio. He lives in Western Australia.

Tim will be in conversation with Robbie Arnott, author of LimberlostThe Rain Heron and Flames. He’s a two-time winner of The Age Book of the Year, and has also been awarded the Voss Literary Prize. Hi new novel, Dusk, is out in October.
