Fiction • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Grounded in the Western Australian landscape, Tim Winton's loosely connected stories follow men and women, old and young, as they experience the pivotal moments that will set the trajectories of their lives. Australian actors Humphrey Bower and Caroline Lee partner to define these characters in their parallel, sometimes overlapping, experiences as they navigate their way through the significant moments. Bower's deep, rich tone belongs to the landscape itself. His portrayals balance feelings of yearning and fear while his pace underscores the natural rhythm of rural life. Lee's performance requires an additional dose of naïveté and strength as her stories are marked by emotional grit. Each spectacularly handles dialogue, which often builds or releases tension.
