The Turning comprises seventeen overlapping stories of second thoughts and mid-life regret set in the brooding small-town world of coastal Western Australia.
Here are turnings of all kinds - changes of heart, nasty surprises, slow awakenings, sudden detours - where people struggle against the terrible weight of the past and challenge the lives they've made for themselves. These elegiac stories examine the darkness and frailty of ordinary people and celebrate the moments when the light shines through.
These are tales of love, secrets, doubt and torment, the everyday and the extraordinary. An unassuming piano tuner is sent off to contribute to the war effort. A woman with Alzheimer's is dragged along by her interfering son to visit Uluru.

He is the author of eighteen books. His epic novel Cloudstreet was adapted for the theater and has been performed around the world.
