    Tom Keely's reputation is in ruins. And that's the upside. Divorced and unemployed, he's lost faith in everything precious to him. Holed up in a grim high-rise, cultivating his newfound isolation, Keely looks down at a society from which he's retired, hurt, and angry. He's done fighting the good fight, and well past caring. But even in his seedy flat, ducking the neighbours, he's not safe from entanglement. All it takes is an awkward encounter in the lobby.

    Hugh says: "Frustrating"
    "Superb"

    What made the experience of listening to Eyrie the most enjoyable?

    Winton's use of the Australian vernacular, particularly the dialogue of the two main protagonists, makes this a book particularly suited to audio.


    What other book might you compare Eyrie to and why?

    In my view, every book that Winton has ever written is superb: disturbing, honest, engrossing, and compelling. This is no different.


    What about Michael Veitch’s performance did you like?

    Veitch *is* the voice of Keilly.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Courage makes better people of us all."
