A Terror to Australia: Boys Wild, Colonial & Contemporary

Tim Winton

A preview of Winton’s powerful new novel.


In what promises to be one of the major publishing events of the year, acclaimed West Australian author Tim Winton will preview his powerful new novel, The Shepherd’s Hut, before its global release.

How do you learn to be a good man when all the blokes you’ve ever known are brutes?

A powerful meditation on lost boys and the riptide of toxic masculinity, The Shepherd’s Hut is a timely book, as tender as it is savage. This is a novel about what it like to reach for something better, and what that kind of hope and yearning can cost.

Join us for a rare festival appearance as the pre-eminent novelist of his generation brings words, images and sounds to the discussion of our most bewildering and desolate landscape – contemporary manhood.
