Land's Edge

A Coastal Memoir. As Read on BBC Radio 4

'A book to read and reread . . . its reflections are beautiful, urgent and filled with awe' Mail on Sunday

'A lovely, lyrical memoir' The Times

During childhood holidays on Australia's west coast, Tim Winton's days took on a joyous, inescapable ebb and flow. In the mornings, the sun and surf drew him outside and into the water. In the afternoons the wind came in from the ocean and drove him in to his books.

Land's Edge tracks these natural rhythms and reveals the preoccupations of a writer obsessed with that place where sand meets sea. Whether free diving or encountering whale sharks, beachcombing or surprised by a rogue wave or rip current, Winton has always felt awed and enlivened by the ocean. There is nowhere on earth he'd rather be.

'I gobbled up this short but shimmering book in one windswept afternoon' Independent

'Compelling . . . the ocean's twin allure of fear and freedom is what Winton captures so well.' Sunday Times
