Tim Winton: Juice

15 October 2024

An epic novel of determination, survival, and the limits of the human spirit. This is Tim Winton as you’ve never read him before.

Two fugitives, a man and a child, drive all night across a stony desert. As dawn breaks, they roll into an abandoned mine site. From the vehicle they survey a forsaken place – middens of twisted iron, rusty wire, piles of sun-baked trash. They’re exhausted, traumatised, desperate now. But as a refuge, this is the most promising place they’ve seen. The child peers at the field of desolation. The man thinks to himself, this could work.

Problem is, they’re not alone.

So begins a searing, propulsive journey through a life whose central challenge is not simply a matter of survival, but of how to maintain human decency as everyone around you falls ever further into barbarism.

Join Tim Winton for an unmissable evening at Brisbane City Hall. Books will be available for purchase on the night courtesy of Avid Reader.
