Tom Keely's reputation is in ruins. And that's the upside.

Divorced and unemployed, he's lost faith in everything precious to him. From his seedy highrise flat Keely looks down at a society from which he's retired hurt and angry, well past caring. But he cannot avoid entanglement with the neighbours: a woman from his past, a boy the likes of which he's never met before. Two strangers leading a life beyond his experience and into whose orbit he falls despite himself.

What follows is a ground-breaking novel for our times - funny, confronting, and inhabited by unforgettable characters.

'A superb tale of disillusionment and redemption, loss and beauty, this is Winton in top form . . . [He] has rarely been funnier.' Michael Williams, The Guardian (Australia)

'Outstanding . . . From the opening pages you know you are in the hands of a master.' Stephen Romei, Weekend Australian

'Tim Winton's Doris is a gem . . . The characterisations are a joy.' Canberra Times

'An absurdly good writer . . . This is a fascinating, thought-provoking book.' Publishers Weekly (US)

'Eyrie is breathtaking . . . honest, provocative and brilliant.' William Yeoman, West Australian

    What a disappointment. I enjoyed the development of the story with Winton using his considerable skill at creating atmosphere and sense of place, the characters and their interaction. However I felt let down by the number of threads of the story that were not resolved.

    I thought it started a bit slow but once I got into it I couldn't put it down. I think at times my head was feeling like Tom's 😃

    So began a Wintonfest this summer after reading Eyrie. The wordcraft, setting,characters are now embedded in my head, making the leisure of life during the holidays intriguing. I could not put Eyrie down and revelled in the familiarity of the themes...early life growing up with parents who gave refuge to victims of domestic violence, disillusionment, breakdown, family angst and middle class culture examined. I ached with compassion for so many of the characters, even the disgusting violent bullies. Immediately wanted to re read but found myself swept into Breath, then Dirt Music. I just kept looking at how many pages were remaining, not wanting the stories to end. Tim I cannot believe I have not discovered your writing before this summer. I am glad you are so prolific.

  • Hard to read

    By Jemimaduck48
    I've read four other Tim Winton books and enjoyed all of them, but found this very difficult to read. Seems like it's almost trying to be poetry, staccato sentences many of which I can't make sense of. I need a dictionary handy to understand half the words. I'm sure upon careful reading and study this will be cast as some kind of literary masterpiece, but I just can't get into it.

    Cloudstreet mesmerized me. Eyrie entranced me with a blockbuster of descriptive genius. Tim, lad, the world is bigger than Perth and Freo,,,you need to get out a bit. Love the writing, have done the pilgrimage to the west,now Tim needs to widen the perspective
