Pulped Fiction 

Seems incredible that there has been no media on this. Rumour has it that Tim Winton’s new book “The Boy Who Wiped it on The Curtains” was misprinted and had to be returned and pulped by Penguin. Where are the news moguls in this? Anyhow, I have always wanted to do some editorial cartooning. It was hard to get Tim’s dead humourless eyes, but I liked the hanged trees that he murdered.

    Cartooning. Does this mean you’re being opressed like that cunt Bill Leak?

    The boy behind the curtain, the footy in the ute, the surfboard behind the door … Just when we thought it was curtains for rhe lord of littoral lit, he’s back to say no, there’s more. Wintons recognised internationally, and rightly so, for the cliches on his pages but in his latest offering he strikes out at a bold new tangent taking the cliche to the cover. Will it work? Did concept albums? From karrinyup to Albany the breadth of wintons maturing sense of place is striking and here he shows us yet again that you can take the boy out of the curtain but you can’t take the curtain out of the boy. Buy it, put it on your coffee table where your friends can see the cover, next to your collection of concept albums.
