Peter Goldsworthy divides his time between medicine and literature. He has won awards across a range of genres, including poetry, fiction, opera and theatre. His 1989 novel Maestro has been reissued in the A&R Australian Classics series, and his 1996 novel Wish in the Text Classic series. Stevie Rodgers' adaptation of his 1993 novella Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam was staged at Belvoir Street Theatre earlier this year. His new novel, his first in 10 years, is Minotaur.
