Publisher's Summary

On childhood holidays to the beach the sun and surf kept Tim Winton outside in the mornings, in the water; the wind would drive him indoors in the afternoons, to books and reading. This ebb and flow of the day became a way of life.
In this beautifully delicate memoir, Tim Winton writes about his obsession with what happens where the water meets the shore - about diving, dunes, beachcombing - and the sense of being on the precarious, wondrous edge of things that haunts his novels.

The Aussie Coast

Beautiful, evocative, tough, poetic analysis of the relationship between the writer and the coast. The Australianisms are lovely, and that's not an everyday occurrence. The reader is appropriately laconic, because Aussies don't do overwrought, but the subject and the language is lyrical and gorgeous.
