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. Tim Winton's funny, sprawling saga is an epic novel of love and acceptance.

Winner of the Miles Franklin and NBC Awards in Australia, Cloudstreet is a celebration of people, places and rhythms which has fuelled imaginations world-wide.

    Great Australian story. Loved it. My copy of Cloudstreet purchased from Bookworld was void of any quotation punctuation marks. As there was plenty of conversational dialogue; reading this book was frustrating. Not sure if it was a misprint.

    cheers.
