When Tim Bowden went back to Tasmania to explore his state of origin for the first time in many years, he was reminded of his adolescent assertion that ‘Tasmania is the testicle of Australia, suffusing the mainland with strength and vigour. What a pity there is only one of them.'

In this cheeky and warm rediscovery of Tasmania and its at-times dark history, Tim and his wife Ros explore some of the quirkier outposts of island civilisation (stopping at a winery or three along the way) and travel through landscapes of incomparable beauty and devastating desolation. With a cast of characters as memorable as they are eccentric, this is a generous portrait of the island and its fiercely proud people.

A fascinating and humorous account of a rapidly changing Tasmania, told by one of Australia's most infectious raconteurs and highly regarded broadcasters, The Devil in Tim belongs in the suitcase or backpack of every visitor to Tasmania, first timers and regulars alike.
