DESCRIPTION

Tim Winton's Island Home is not just a brilliant, moving memoir from one of our finest writers, but a compelling investigation into the way Australia's landscape makes us who we are.'I grew up on the world's largest island.'This apparently simple fact is the starting point for Tim Winton's beautiful, evocative and sometimes provocative memoir of how this unique landscape has shaped him and his writing.For over thirty years, Winton has written novels in which the natural world is as much a living presence as any character, and what is true of his work is also true of his life. From boyhood, his relationship with the rockpools, sea caves, scrub and swamp around him has been as vital as family connections. Camping in hidden inlets on the south coast, walking in the high rocky desert fringe, diving at Ningaloo Reef, bobbing in the ocean between sets, Winton felt the place seep into him, with its rhythms, its dangers, its strange sustenance, and learned to see landscape as a living process.Wise, rhapsodic, exalted, Island Home is the story of how that relationship came to be, and also a passionate exhortation for all of us to feel the ground beneath our feet. Much more powerfully than any political idea, the physical entity of Australia defines us, in ways we too often forget, to our detriment and to the country's.
