              A beautifully told fable about a young boy's journey from adolescence into adulthood, from one of Australia's best-loved writers, re-released for the adult market. Abel Jackson loves to dive. He's a natural in the water. He can't remember a time when he couldn't use a mask and sn...orkel to glide down into the clear deep. Life is tough out at Longboat Bay. Every day the boy helps his mother earn their living from the sea and the land. It's hard work but Abel has the bush and the sky and the bay to himself. Until the day he meets Blueback, the fish that changes his life. Blueback is an achingly beautiful tale about the beauty to be found in a life led simply but meaningfully in tune with nature and the environment. It's the story of Abel and his lifelong friend.

              'To read him is to be reminded not just of the possibilities of fiction but of the human heart.' The Times Here are turnings of all kinds - changes of heart, nasty surprises, slow awakenings, sudden detours - where people struggle against the terrible weight of the past and chall...enge the lives they've made for themselves. Beautifully crafted, and as tender as they are confronting, these elegiac stories examine the darkness and frailty of ordinary people and celebrate the moments when the light shines through. 'Each of these 17 stories is a self-contained whole - as all good short stories should be - yet the sequence reveals striking connections among seemingly disparate lives and experiences. The result is at times mysterious, moving and occasionally deeply unsettling ...... A memorable book and a fine achievement.' Sydney Morning Herald 'The writing is frankly brilliant ...... Winton shows us how startling ordinary life is. And he does it in a way that's more amazing than if he had shown a ghost shimmering on the page.' Boston Globe

              By Winton, Tim

And not just any girl: it has to be Vicki Streeton, the smartest, prettiest, richest girl in class. What chance have you got when your dad's... a cop, your mum's a frighteningly understanding parent, your brother wets the bed and the teachers take an instant dislike to you and then you fall in love at twelve-and-three-quarter years old? It can only mean trouble, worry, mega-embarrassment and some wild, wild times.

              Blueback (EPUB ebook)

              By Winton, Tim

              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 finds wisdom through living in harmony with all forms of life. It is a beautiful distillation of Winton's art and concerns. 'In true fable style, this is a simple story, but one so beautiful, poignant and moving it is impossible to ignore.' Daily Telegraph 'Winton ...... convince[s] us of the preciousness of our oceans not through lectures but through his characters' steady wonder.' New York Times
