The Modern Australian Classic.

From separate catastrophes two rural families flee to the city and find themselves sharing a great, breathing, shuddering joint called Cloudstreet, where they begin their lives again from scratch. For twenty years they roister and rankle, laugh and curse until the roof over their heads becomes a home for their hearts. A funny, sprawling saga of love and acceptance.

Winner of the Miles Franklin and NBC Awards in Australia.

Cloudstreet
An engaging and moving story of two disparate families who are brought together by fate and hardship to live side by side. Winton's vivid depictions of Western Australian locations - town and country, river and coast - along with his very real characterisations transport the reader right there beside the hardworking Lambs and the degenerate Pickles as they struggle through life in their own ways. Rich with symbolism, the story is written in a meandering, flowing style, evocative of the river which is such a recurrent feature throughout the entirety of the novel.
