Note: Film tie-in Originally published: 2008 Bruce Pike can hear the sea at night and longs to go to the shore. When he befriends Loonie, his small town's resident wild boy, that dream is realised. Together, intoxicated by the treacherous power of the waves and by the immortality of youth, the two boys defy all limits and rules. Pikelet learns what it is to be extraordinary, feels exhilaration for the very first time, and - caught up in love and friendship and an erotic current he cannot resist - he understands the true meaning of fear. These are experiences that will far outlast his adolescence. How, then, to mask the emptiness of leaving such intensity behind?

Note: Originally published: Melbourne: Hamish Hamilton, 2013 Tom Keely has lost his bearings. His reputation in ruins, he finds himself holed up in a flat at the top of a grim high-rise, looking down on the world he's fallen out of love with. He has cut himself off and intends to keep it that way, until one day he runs into some neighbours: a woman from his past and her introverted young boy. The encounter shakes him up in a way he doesn't understand and, despite himself, he lets them in. But the pair come trailing a dangerous past of their own, and he is soon immersed in a world that threatens to destroy everything he has learnt to love.

Book:Island home, a landscape memoir:2017
Author: Winton, Tim
Year: 2017
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Picador
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: Melbourne: Hamish Hamilton, 2015 'I grew up on the world's largest island.' This apparently simple fact is the starting point for Tim Winton's beautiful, evocative and sometimes provocative memoir of how Australia's unique landscape has shaped him and his writing. Wise, rhapsodic, exalted - 'Island Home' is not just a moving insight into the life and art of one of our finest writers, but a compelling investigation into the way our country shapes us.

Book:The boy behind the curtain, notes from an Australian life:2018
Author: Winton, Tim
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Picador
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: Australia: Hamish Hamilton, 2016 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.

Talking book - CD:The boy behind the curtain:2017
Author: Winton, Tim
Year: 2017
Language: English
Type: Talking book - CD
Publisher: Bolinda
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: The remarkable true stories in 'The Boy Behind the Curtain' reveal an intimate and rare view of Tim Winton's imagination at work and play. A chronicler of sudden turnings, brutal revelations and tender sideswipes, Tim Winton has always been in the business of trouble. In his novels chaos waits in the wings and ordinary people are ambushed by events and emotions beyond their control. But as these extraordinary powerful memoirs show, the abrupt and the headlong are old familiars to the author himself, for in many ways his has been a life shaped by havoc.

Note: For years Jaxie Clackton has dreaded going home. His beloved mum is dead, and he wishes his dad was too, until one terrible moment leaves his life stripped to nothing. No one ever told Jaxie Clackton to be careful what he wishes for. And so Jaxie runs. There's just one person in the world who understands him, but to reach her he'll have to cross the vast saltlands of Western Australia. It is a place that harbours criminals and threatens to kill those who haven't reckoned with its hot, waterless vastness. This is a journey only a dreamer - or a fugitive - would attempt.
