Read full description of the books Hatched: Tim Winton Award Winners 20th Anniversary Collection:
In his foreword Tim Winton writes 'storytelling is a deep human impulse...every culture, every family is held together by story'. He goes on and says it has been a great pleasure to watch young people exercise their story telling instincts and I agree with him, these stories were a pleasure to read.
The award is a collaberation between Tim and the staff of Subiaco City library (bravo to them) and I see also a similar award has since been established inspired by Shaun Tan for young artists . Two examples of engaging our children with the patronage of living artists. I would support more of these efforts. Buy a copy and donate it to your local council and invite them to emulate Subiaco - I will be.
Read information about the authorTim Winton was born in Perth, Western Australia, but moved at a young age to the small country town of Albany.
While a student at Curtin University of Technology, Winton wrote his first novel, An Open Swimmer. It went on to win The Australian/Vogel Literary Award in 1981, and launched his writing career. In fact, he wrote "the best part of three books while at university". His second book, Shallows, won the Miles Franklin Award in 1984. It wasn't until Cloudstreet was published in 1991, however, that his career and economic future were cemented.
In 1995 Winton’s novel, The Riders, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize, as was his 2002 book, Dirt Music. Both are currently being adapted for film. He has won many other prizes, including the Miles Franklin Award three times: for Shallows (1984), Cloudstreet (1992) and Dirt Music (2002). Cloudstreet is arguably his best-known work, regularly appearing in lists of Australia’s best-loved novels. His latest novel, released in 2013, is called Eyrie.
He is now one of Australia's most esteemed novelists, writing for both adults and children. All his books are still in print and have been published in eighteen different languages. His work has also been successfully adapted for stage, screen and radio. On the publication of his novel, Dirt Music, he collaborated with broadcaster, Lucky Oceans, to produce a compilation CD, Dirt Music – Music for a Novel.
He has lived in Italy, France, Ireland and Greece but currently lives in Western Australia with his wife and three children.
