In the Winter Dark by Tim Winton

In the Winter Dark harks of economy. It is a mere slip of a book, a novella; set in one place and with only four characters. The vivid imagery is placed with an amazing economy of words. Tension rises in sometimes two sentences and the climax erup..." Read more of this review »

The truth? I don't know what to say about this book. It speaks of people and events I don't know of. It is written in a language I have difficulty connecting to.

Much is unclear.

Parts are repetitive.

It is unstructured.

Such anguish and fear!

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
Robert A. Heinlein

Jeanette Winterson
“Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.”
Jeanette Winterson

“Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend”
