Publisher's Summary

Now a major motion picture starring Simon Baker, Elizabeth Debicki, and Richard Roxburgh.

Breath, by renowned Australian author Tim Winton, is a story of risk, of learning one's limits by challenging death. 

On the wild, lonely coast of Western Australia, two thrill-seeking teenage boys fall under the spell of a veteran big-wave surfer named Sando. Their mentor urges them into a regiment of danger and challenge, and the boys test themselves and each other on storm swells and over shark-haunted reefs. 

The boys give no thought to what they could lose, or to the demons that drive their mentor on into ever-greater danger. Venturing beyond all caution - in sports, relationships, and sex - the characters approach a point from which none of them will return undamaged.
