The Turning, Paperback Book
2 out of 5 (1 rating)


In these extraordinary tales about ordinary people from ordinary places, Tim Winton describes turnings of all kinds: second thoughts, changes of heart, nasty surprises, slow awakenings, abrupt transitions.

The seventeen stories overlap to paint a convincing and cohesive picture of a world where people struggle against the terrible weight of their past and challenge the lives they have made for themselves.

Review by

I dont know how to describe this book. the concept is that you have overlapping short stories, sometimes that leave me with more questions that an ordinary book would.In the end although I enjoyed the read I have no wish to keep the book for another read, the story itself did not get to me
