As the images progress, the landscape begins to change, with the slow penetration of economic development. Nine of these stories focus on the Lang family. It's a classic, but if this scribe had just one of his to choose from to snuggle up to on a desert island with it would be 'The Riders' — perhaps with 'Dirt Music' in reserve. As it is written in first person he portrays his feeling creating contrast from the past to his present.
He could tell jokes to make you laugh and could hang out with you all day, and you would never know that he was depressed and always drank a lot of the times. The first rays of sun sting my bare back. We should wait patiently for the proper time so that time will be used best. Out there is west, true west. Tim Winton, with raw and beautiful prose, asks you not to flinch or to forgive but to witness these characters, their choices, and the circumstances, and to draw your own conclusions about the future of their souls.

For our country Port Arthur changed everything, but I had long before distanced myself from any form of gun culture. The best prediction for sea level in the future is simply a linear projection of the history of sea level at the same location in the past, or about 7-8 inches by 2080, for Long Island. But this is more than a memoir and more than a story — Winton is writing to make a point. Tim Winton is the ultimate story-teller. Though nominally a collection of short stories, I feel The Turning is essentially an unusually structured novel and as such it is best to consider the individual stories as chapters, though they are capable of standing on their own.

Many of these stories offer this kind of turning, but always at an emotional price. I lived there happily for twelve years but I do not dream of that house.
I am flabbergasted by Tim Winton's skill. At first glimpse of the Indian Ocean I stop running and feel the relief unwinding in my chest, in my neck and shoulders. We must use our precious time. I had been really enjoying these stories, all linked to a small fictional Aussie town called Angelus, however for some reason I just couldn't bring myself to start the next story, which was by some way the lengthiest in the book. A quintessential Australian suburban life, per haps. Gulls scatter before the blur of my insane kelpie.
During this time certain roles were expected of men and women. He connects us to the sea — and to where the bush or desert meets the sea. It's difficult to recommend individual stories, particularly when so much is to be gained from reading the sum. It just looks like it because Scafetta failed to compensate for autocorrelation.
