Breath is Tim Winton at his finest: a beautiful, gripping, deeply moving novel about our need for excitement and to push ourselves to the limits; about the power of the sea; and how ordinary people live with tragedy.
?Winton?s latest novel is both a hymn to the beauty of flying on water and a sober assessment of the costs of losing one?s balance, in every sense of the word.? ? The New Yorker
?Darkly exhilarating? ? New York Times Book Review
?This slender book packs an emotional wallop? Winton is well-known in Australia and should be here.? ? Publishers Weekly
?Tim Winton?s newest novel offers an irresistible taste of oceanic communion? ? Los Angeles Times
'Tender, incisive, sometimes brutal and always moving coming-of-age novel.? ? Seattle Times
?Winton is pitch perfect in capturing (but not exploiting) adolescent angst, and he describes surfing and the sea so thrillingly that even non-swimmers will want to plunge right in.' ? Library Journal
