A Giant of Australian Literature
Only dreamers or the desperate would cross the vast saltland deserts of Western Australia. So which is Jaxie Clacton, the lonely boy at the heart of Tim Winton’s brutal, tender novel The Shepherd’s Hut? It’s the latest masterful work by one of the world’s greatest living novelists. To celebrate Winton’s first visit to Edinburgh since 1993, he looks back over an oeuvre that includes classics such as Dirt Music, Cloudstreet and Breath, in conversation with John Williams, Daily Books editor and writer for The New York Times.
