The Boy Behind the Curtain : Notes from an Australian Life, Hardback Book

The Boy Behind the Curtain : Notes from an Australian Life Hardback

Description

The Boy Behind the Curtain is a portrait of a life, a place and a man.

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.
