Breath is a story about the wildness of youth - the lust for excitement and terror, the determination to be extraordinary, the wounds that heal and those that don't - and about learning to live with its passing. In his first novel for seven years, Tim Winton has achieved a new level of mastery. Breath confirms him as one of the world's finest storytellers, a writer of novels that are at the same time simple and profound, relentlessly gripping and deeply moving.When paramedic Bruce Pike is called out to deal with another teenage adventure gone wrong, he knows better than his partner - better than the parents - what happened and how. Thirty years before, that dead boy could have been him.Winner of Age Book of the Year: Fiction 2008 and Australian Independent Booksellers Indie Awards: Best Australian Book 2008. Shortlisted for NSW Premier's Literary Award Christina Stead Prize for Fiction 2009 and Miles Franklin Literary Award 2009.
