Blueback (out Jan 1) can’t fully capture the essence of Tim Winton’s 1997 family-orientated book but it’s not a bad effort. The weaker subplot is about protecting the environment from simplistically villainous fishermen and property developers. The stronger subplot is about the unescapable bond that exists between a parent and their child... and how difficult it can be to let go of the past. Grade: B-.
