Auther: Tim Winton
Genre: Australian fiction
from the blurb
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.
