The Yield

by Tara June Winch

"This novel is a chance to listen. A moving and evocative story of Aboriginal Australia. With hope shining through its pages, it details a dispossessed culture and the importance of preserving language. Albert Gondiwindi knows he is dying and his 99-year land lease is about to expire. He starts compiling a dictionary of his old language when his grandaughter, August returns to begin the fight to save their land, stories and the secrets of the Murrumby river. Her story is intersected by Albert's Wiradjuri dictionary in the most wonderful parts of this story, complete with Wiradjuri words and English translations. The Yield is timely and a must-read for all Australians." - Dean

 "So, so beautiful – and like nothing I've ever read. Wiradjuri author Tara June Winch is incredible and I know so many of you will adore this book! There are passages of sublime prose; sentences that shook me and took me new places; and parts that made me bawl for everything that has been and is being lost, stolen and damaged for First Nations people in Australia. The Yield follows the story of August who, after spending years overseas, returns to find her ancestors’ land – her family’s home – being repossessed by a mining company. The words of her grandfather, Albert Gondiwindi, weaved through August’s story, make this book a must-read! Albert’s dictionary is a masterpiece and some of the most moving prose I’ve read. You might know Tara June Winch from her first novel, Swallow the Air, which won several Australian Literary Awards and is a firm staff favourite at Better Read Than Dead. The Yield is my favourite Australian book this year – and it might be yours, too!" - Emma Co
