The Turning Summary


The Turning by Tim Winton

Tim Winton is undisputedly one of the finest storytellers working in the English language. Now he gives us seventeen exquisite, overlapping stories of second thoughts and mid-life regret - extraordinary tales of ordinary people from ordinary places. 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 challenge the lives they've made for themselves.

Brilliantly crafted, and as tender as it is challenging, The Turning dissects and celebrates the moments when the light shines through.

The Turning Reviews


""The Turning" is finely crafted without being showy; sincere and moving without any authorial tug at the heartstrings. The best stories are nearly -- what's the word I'm looking for? -- immaculate." -- "Bookforum"
