Michael Winkler


Michael Winkler’s most recent book, Grimmish, was described by J. M. Coetzee as, “The strangest book you are likely to read this year.” Helen Garner said, “I lurched between bursts of wild laughter, shudders of horror, and gasps of awe at Winkler’s verbal command.” Winkler won the Calibre Essay Prize in 2016 for ‘The Great Red Whale’, an essay about Uluru, relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, mental illness and Moby Dick. His journalism, short fiction, reviews and essays have been widely published.
