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.
