Independent Tim Winton’s second short-story collection explores the complexity of human relationships through the themes of futility and hope, revenge and redemption, birth and death that twist through each tale in turn, emerging, re-emerging, competing, conflicting. As characters, too, surface and reappear, their lives are slowly, painstakingly revealed. Through frozen moments and stolen glances, their stories – and histories – are told, their emotions exposed, their souls stripped bare.

Minimum of Two is a collection of short stories by Australian author Tim Winton. What makes them special is the honesty that Winton conveys with his own style. Many of the stories are very short and simply written on the surface, but when you read them you find what he doesnt say is as important as what he does. He conveys with a few well chosen words what less accomplished writers take pages and pages to come close to. His words give the reader room to think for themselves and make them more moving when a connection between writer and reader is established. Thats what makes him a special writer and this story collection worth having.

As a book used in English and Literature classes, it is not the most engaging material for students. The adult contexts and issues of many of the short stories fail to captivate many younger students. Not the best choice for a high school English class.
