The boy behind the curtain : notes from an Australian life

Winton, Tim2018
Books
In this deeply personal collection of true stories and essays Tim Winton shows how moments from his childhood and life growing up have shaped his views on class, faith, fundamentalism, the environment, and - most pressingly - how all his experiences have made him a writer. From unexpected links between car crashes and faith, surfing and writing, to the story of his upbringing in the changing Australian landscape, 'The Boy Behind the Curtain' is an impassioned, funny, joyous, astonishing collection of memories, and Winton's most personal book to date.
