PRH to publish new Tim Winton book in October

Penguin Random House will publish a new nonfiction book by Tim Winton in October.

The Boy behind the Curtain, a collection of true stories and essays, is ‘Winton’s most personal book to date’, according to the publisher.

‘Winton reflects on the accidents, traumatic and serendipitous, that have influenced his view of life and fuelled his distinctive artistic vision,’ said the publisher. ‘And in essays on class, fundamentalism, asylum seekers, guns and the natural world he reveals not only the incidents and concerns that have made him the much-loved writer he is, but some of what unites the life and the work.’

PRH is also marking the 25th anniversary of the publication of Cloudstreet this year. The publisher is supplying bookmarks and other promotional material to retailers, and the State Opera of South Australia, in association with Adelaide Festival Centre, will premiere the opera Cloudstreet! in May.
