The Shepherd's Hut by Tim Winton - Book Review
Teenager Jaxie Clackton has been dealt a tough hand in life and unexpected events see him venture into the Australian bush. He’s pretty rough around the edges but endears himself to the reader as his strength and depth of character are revealed.
There is a certain quality shared by good Australian fiction that brings the natural environment to life in a way that engages all of the senses. I place this alongside my other favourite Winton reads, Dirt Music and Breath.
P.S. It’s been a long time between book recommendations but I’m back! Thanks for staying with me all this time, I hope you’ll stick around. You can also find me on Instagram here and Facebook here.
