I'm from California but I've spent the greater part of the last few years immersed in Australia via novels and travel guides and some non fiction history tomes. I've ended up with a total yearning to go, which I can't do much about. BUT, I also have a deep fondness for Tim Winton novels, which hopefully is something I CAN do something about:
is there anyone here that can recommend an Australian novelist with a similar feel to Winton? My friend who lives near Melbourne just rolled her eyes when I asked, she said actual Australians are far less fond of him than those of us up here. She said high school was misery, being forced to read him at length. Clearly, not a fan.
But I'm hoping someone here can recommend something for me? I'd be grateful!
Most people I know love Tim Winton - I can't understand why anyone would roll their eyes. I liked 'Cloudstreet' and 'The Riders' the best.
I had to do DH Lawrence at school and I suppose I would roll my eyes at that I suppose.
Can't think of anyone with a similar feel, although I will think of someone eventually. Peter Goldsworthy or Peter Carey can be recommended.
wow, thanks! I have a new wishlist! I'll start hunting for these titles today. Thank you SOOO much.
