Set around Moreton Island and Noosa in 1961, To Become a Whale is an extraordinarily vivid and haunting novel that reads like an instant classic of Australian literature. There are echoes of Craig Silvey, Favel Parrett, Tim Winton and Randolph Stow in this moving, transformative and very Australian novel.

Literary crime fiction at its best. Even before publication, Wimmera had won the Crime Writers' Association's Debut Dagger Award as well as other awards and short-listings. Compared to Jane Harper's The Dry and Dennis Lehane's Mystic River, this is the work of a master storyteller.
