A story of survival, solitude and unlikely friendship, by one of Australia's greatest contemporary writers

Tim Winton, one of Australia’s greatest contemporary writers, discusses his much anticipated new novel The Shepherd’s Hut. Chaired by Ross Raisin.

'The Shepherd’s Hut is a brilliant reminder that Winton is one of the world’s great living novelists.'  Ron Rash   

Tim Winton has published over 20 books for adults and children, and his work has been translated into many different languages. Since his first novel, An Open Swimmer, won the Australian/Vogel Award in 1981, he has won the Miles Franklin Award four times (for Shallows, Cloudstreet, Dirt Music and Breath) and twice been shortlisted for the Booker Prize (for The Riders and Dirt Music). Active in the environmental movement, he is the Patron of the Australian Marine Conservation Society. He lives in Western Australia.

Ross Raisin is the author of three novels: A Natural (2017), Waterline (2011) and God’s Own Country (2008). In 2013 he was named as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists, and he has been the recipient of several other awards, including The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year and a Betty Trask Award, and been shortlisted for various others, including the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and the Guardian First Book Award. He has written short stories for Granta, Prospect, The Sunday Times, Esquire, BBC Radio 3 and 4, among others, and has contributed to anthologies such as Best British Short Stories. Ross teaches creative writing at Goldsmiths University and as part of the Guardian Masterclass programme and is a writer-in-residence for the education charity First Story.
