Tim Winton's classic first novel, full of wonderful characterisations and rich and evocative language. Jerra and his best mate Sean set off in a beaten-up old VW to go camping on the coast. Jerra's friends and family want to know when he will finish university, when he will find a girl. But they don't understand about Sean's mother, Jewel, or the bush or the fish with the pearl. They think he needs a job, but what Jerra is searching for is more elusive. Only the sea, and perhaps the old man who lives in a shack beside it, can help. An Open Swimmer is a remarkable first novel by award-winning author Tim Winton.More
"Amid brooding images of mutilation and guilt, awakening sexuality and displacement of ideals ... Winton draws together a delicate pattern of images and tensions and energy. His first novel, it is a work of energy and restraint." (The Good Reading Guide)
