Book Review - The Windy Season (Allen & Unwin)

This page-turning mystery about a missing person, drug-running and violence is also a moving coming-of-age novel in which seventeen-year-old Paul confronts the challenges of family, arduous physical work and bourgeoning sexual desire. Set in the fictional West Australian coastal town of Stark, the novel’s visceral evocation of the ocean reveals both the perils of life and the possibility of transformation. Through the use of clipped, gritty dialogue and the subtlety of what remains unsaid, The Windy Season presents an emotionally powerful exploration of guilt, damaged masculinity and the struggle to overcome the painful distance between those we hope to love.
