Summary Note A new novel by Tim Winton - this is his first in seven years. Narrated by award-winning Australian actor, Dan Wyllie. major international publishing event for 2008. Winner of The Age Book of the Year (Fiction) 2008. Breath is Tim Winton at his finest: a beautiful, gripping, deeply moving novel about our need for excitement and to push ourselves to the limits; about the power of the sea; and how ordinary people live with tragedy. "Winton„s latest novel is both a hymn to the beauty of flying on water and a sober assessment of the costs of losing one's balance, in every sense of the word." - The New Yorker. "Darkly exhilarating." - New York Times Book Review. "This slender book packs an emotional wallop ... Winton is well-known in Australia and should be here." - Publishers Weekly. "Tim Winton's newest novel offers an irresistible taste of oceanic communion." - Los Angeles Times. "Tender, incisive, sometimes brutal and always moving coming-of-age novel." - Seattle Times. "Winton is pitch perfect in capturing (but not exploiting) adolescent angst, and he describes surfing and the sea so thrillingly that even non-swimmers will want to plunge right in." - Library Journal.
