Product Information : Dirt Music - Tim Winton

Manufacturer's product description

Winner of the 2002 Miles Franklin Literary Award.Features music from Dirt Music, The Album.Winner of the 2002 N.S.W. Premiers Literary Award and the 2001 Book Data/ABA Book of the Year Award.Georgie Jutland is a mess. At forty, with her career in ruins, she finds herself stranded in White Point with a fisherman she doesnt love and two kids whose dead mother she can never replace. Her days have fallen into domestic tedium and social isolation. Her nights are a blur of vodka and pointless loitering in cyberspace. Leached of all confidence, Georgie has lost her way; she barely recognises herself. In prose as haunting and beautiful as its western setting, Dirt Music confirms Tim Wintons status as one of the finest novelists of his generation. A terrific novel. Wintons best yet.
