Four time winner of the Miles Franklin Award

One of Australia’s most esteemed authors

Tim Winton’s first novel in five years, the last being the Miles Franklin Award-winning Breath

Eyrie is beautifully written and wonderfully funny and marks the return of master storyteller Tim Winton.

Eyrie tells the story of Tom Keely, a man who’s lost his bearings in middle age and is now holed up in a flat at the top of a grim highrise, looking down on the world he’s fallen out of love with. He’s cut himself off, until one day he runs into some neighbours: a woman he used to know when they were kids, and her introverted young boy.

The encounter shakes him up in a way that he doesn’t understand. Despite himself, Keely lets them in. What follows is a heart-stopping, groundbreaking novel for our times – funny, confronting, exhilarating and haunting – populated by unforgettable characters. It asks how, in an impossibly compromised world, we can ever hope to do the right thing.
