More random thoughts on Dirt Music, Tim Winton

In a previous post, I mentioned how Winton seems to idealize children. After I posted that, I went back and discovered that many of the children in his books (as well as adults) have names that are of animals: Bird, and Luther Fox in Dirt Music; Fish in Cloudstreet. All the books also seem to discuss how trees seem animated into human form during various crises. Hmmm.
