Cloudstreet is a place where the surreal and the homely meet, 11 Feb. 2000
Cloudstreet is one of those novels that you'll never ever forget. Evoking a time gone by, you learn to expect the unexpectable, to laugh at the most tragic of events and you learn to take the pickles to your heart as if they were your own family.
Where else could see at the start of a novel a man who has to make a choice between saving his friend from a heart attack on a beach.... or saving the fish he's just caught from the sea.
Simply, this could possibly be the best novel written in the world....ever!
