Book Review – Swallow the Air

Cover image for Swallow the air / Tara June Winch.

By Tara June Winch

This debut novel from Tara June Winch is short but startling and beautifully written story about family, loss and belonging. I’m looking forward to reading ‘The Yield’, her 2020 Miles Franklin award winner.
