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.


Nothing short of magnificent, a wonderful read.
-Andrew Yule, Time Out

Winton’s writing is a heady blend of muscular description, deep sentiment and metaphysics.
-Sunday Telegraph

His prose retains the power both to shock and to fill us with wonder.
-The Bulletin

Cloudstreet gets you inside the very skin of post-war working-class Australians the way Joyce makes you feel like a turn-of-the-century Dubliner.
-Washington Post
