Winner Miles Franklin Literary Award 1984

Tim Winton's first Miles Franklin winner, Shallows, revolves around the ruthless commerce of whaling, and Queenie Cookson, who joins the fight to end it.

Angelus is a frontier town with a dark colonial past. And, for a century and a half, it’s been a whaling port first and foremost. Queenie Cookson comes from a long line of whalers, but she loves the majestic creatures that visit every winter, so when citified conservationists descend on her community to protest, she’s torn between loyalties. And everything solid around her begins to come apart.

'Full of strikingly described action ... an imaginative reconstruction of primitive whaling and the personal suffering involved ... Tim Winton, in this admirable novel, deals with pride, loneliness, longing for love and the struggle between nostalgic heroes and the heroism of compassion.'
The Times

'Shallows is a profound and inspiring work of fiction.'
The Age

'It makes the heart pound.'
The Los Angeles Times

'A moving and powerful elegy ... Winton writes vividly, and with courage, about serious matters in a cynical world.'
The Observer
