This is an auction for THE TURNING by Tim Winton.

From Wikipedia:

"The Turning is a collection of short stories by acclaimed Australian author Tim Winton. It was published in April 2005 by Picador. Many of the 17 short stories included interweave in their respective narratives, creating an intriguing and twisting central plot-line that generally centers around protagonist Vic Lang.

This multi award-winning collection of short stories is used commonly in the curriculum of 3/AB English students in Western Australia.
