The Lamb Enters the Dreaming traces the life of Nathanael Pepper of the Wotjobaluk people, who was born as the first pastoralists were driving cattle and sheep into Victoria's Wimmera region. In their wake came Christian missionaries, who were just as hostile to the settlers' violence as they were to the traditional beliefs of Aboriginal people. The extraordinary story of Pepper's conversion to Christianity in 1860, and his subsequent attempts to reconcile the apparently irreconcilable, reveals much about the deeper symbolic and moral forces at work in this collision of cultures.

Cloudstreet 25th Anniversary
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Cloudstreet, Tim Winton’s sprawling, comic epic about luck and love, fortitude and forgiveness, and the magic of the everyday. However it may never have been published had it not been for the stranger who chased after Tim with the manuscript he’d left it on a bus in Rome. Since it was first published by McPhee Gribble on 1 April 1991 Tim Winton’s award-winning novel has been reimagined as a successful play, a major TV mini-series and now an opera.
