The Riders, the novel that brought Tim Winton his first Booker Prize shortlisting, charts an odyssey across Europe, a transfixing journey through the underworld of every lover's nightmare.

Fred Scully waits at the arrival gate of an international airport, anxious to see his wife and daughter. After two years in Europe they are finally settling down. He sees a new life before them, a stable outlook again, a fresh start, a cottage in the Irish countryside that he’s renovated by hand. He’s waited, sweated on this reunion. The flight lands. The doors at the airport hiss open. And Scully’s life falls to pieces.

'Winton has forced a different kind of thinking about men and their imperatives, about the value and meaning of action ... The Riders is a grand, poised, metaphorical reconciliation.'
Sydney Morning Herald

'Makes the senses jump. Concentrated, passionate, invigorating.'
The Independent

'The curse of this haunting book is that you read it too fast.'
The New Yorker

'A brilliant reflection on the instability of personality and memory.'
The Daily Telegraph
