Creativity and transcendence

Tim Winton is the author of more than 25 books including Cloudstreet (1991), Dirt Music (2001), The Turning (2005), and Eyrie (2013). He is perhaps Australia’s most acclaimed and beloved novelist, and has been named a “Living Treasure” by the National Trust of Australia. 

In this interview, he describes creative pursuits as “food for the human spirit”, sorely needed in our frequently narrow, literalistic, and technocratic age.
