Jaxie dreads going home. His mum’s dead. The old man bashes him without mercy, and he wishes he was an orphan. And then, in one terrible moment, his life is stripped to little more than what he can carry and how he can keep himself alive. There’s just one person left in the world who understands him and what he still dares to hope for. But to reach her he’ll have to cross the vast saltlands on a trek that only a dreamer or a fugitive would attempt.

Tim Winton at the top of his game. Don't miss this utterly absorbing, captivating read. A true study in the mastery of 'voice'. Themes of masculinity in our culture that are just so important to acknowledge and explore.
