Critical Praise

“EYRIE is a fine work by any standard. It tackles myths of prosperity and success in a way that is not always comfortable, but that stirs deep thought. It is rich in compassion and affectionate towards the unlovely. It has a strong belief that no journey ends at the halfway mark. EYRIE is a novel for which our culture has been in urgent need.” 

—Michael McGirr, The Age (Australia)

“[A] beautifully written, powerful ninth novel…[Winton is] an absurdly good writer, with not only the proverbial eye for detail but also a facility for rendering each detail in an original way. Winton is ambitious; this is a state-of-the-nation novel about a world run amok…This is a fascinating, thought-provoking book.”
