Editorial Reviews

Versatile Australian performer Stig Wemyss performs this collection of short stories by Australian master Tim Winton. Wemyss appropriately hones his tenor voice to a crisp, minimal style reflecting his subject matter: men and women struggling under the hardships of living that have plagued the characters of great literature from Homer to Alice Munro.

Minimum of Two features 14 short stories, including the title story, "No Memory Comes", and seven stories starring Jerra, Rachel, and Sam Nilsam. Moving explorations of the ties that both bind and bruise the hearts of men, these stories will be appreciated by fans of Munro, Tim O’Brien, and that great seaside minimalist himself, Ernest Hemingway.

Publisher's Summary

Tim Winton's characters are ordinary people who battle to maintain loyalty against all odds; women, children, men whose relationships strain under pressure and leave them bewildered, hoping, sometimes fleeing, but often finding strength in forgotten parts of themselves.

Th reader doesn't do the writer justice!

I am a big fan of Tim Winton but I just can't listen to this audio book. Stig Wemyss doesn't have enough faith enough in the writer and imposes a false sense of urgency which doesn't suit the text at all.
