Winton’s ‘Island Home’

One of my favourite books of last year was Island Home: A Landscape Memoir by Tim Wintonwhich is both a celebration of Australia’s wild places and an impassioned argument for their preservation

As I said in a review for The Daily Telegraph, it’s shy of 200 pages, yet airy with the space of the great southern land.

It’s now out in paperback from Picador and, courtesy of the author, you can read an extract from it on Deskbound Traveller.
