Tim Winton will be in the UK in May for a series of events discussing his remarkable new book, The Boy Behind The Curtain.

This deeply personal collection of true stories and essays shows how moments from Winton's 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.
