The Boy Behind The Curtain is one of Tim Winton’s most intimate and revealing work yet.
Winton’s own life has been shaped by havoc. The extraordinarily powerful true stories that make up The Boy Behind the Curtain take us behind the scenes, revealing the accidents, both serendipitous and traumatic, that have influenced his view of life and fuelled his distinctive artistic vision. By turns impassioned, funny, joyous, astonishing, this is Winton’s most personal book to date.
‘A dazzling book, full of wisdom and wonder… with a staggering, effortless sense of drama wherever you pick it up. No one is better than Tim Winton at giving dramatic substance to the interface between art and life. This is a rich and brilliant book.’ Peter Craven, Australian Book Review
