Tim Winton is one of the world’s most celebrated novelists, winning Australia’s prestigious Miles Franklin Award a record four times. Known as an environmentalist writer with a strong sense of landscape and place, many of his novels are set in the farmlands, deserts, forests and mountains of Western Australia. Here, he will discuss his latest book, a powerful memoir entitled The Boy Behind the Curtain, in conversation with award-winning Anglo-Australian writer Evie Wyld.
Tim Winton is one of Australia's most esteemed novelists. He has published 28 books for adults and children, and his work has been translated into 28 languages.
