Tim Winton will be at Waterstones Oxford reading from and discussing his latest book, THE BOY BEHIND THE CURTAIN. This is Winton's most powerful book to date, and the extraordinarily powerful true stories that make up the book 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, joyus and astonishing it is an inisght into the man who has held readers enthralled for three decades.
