Author(s): Tim Winton
Fred Scully can't wait to see his wife and daughter. He's got a new life for them all worked out. He's sweated on this reunion. The doors at the airport hiss open. Scully's life falls apart . . . So begins an odyssey across Europe, a journey through the underworld of every lover's nightmare, as father and daughter, isolated from each other by terror and need, desperately search the wreckage of their lives for answers. Part thriller, part love story, part ghost story, The Riders is Tim Winton's first adult novel since Cloudstreet. Its sales have created a publishing sensation, and the reviews have been glowing both here and overseas. The Riders was and continues to be one of the most talked-about and important Australian books of the past decade.
1995. A very good copy.
