Nothing short of magnificent...a wonderful read.



Carolyn See

"Los Angeles Times Book Review"

Winton is a one-man band of genius.



Elizabeth Ward

"The Washington Post"

"Cloudstreet" gets you inside the very skin of postwar working-class australians the way joyce makes you feel like a turn-of-the-century dubliner...people get up from where they have fallen, they try, they keep on. above all, they laugh at themselves, sometimes bitterly, but much more often riotously.

Review

"One of those rare novels that warm the heart, as well as spark the imagination." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Nothing short of magnificent ... a wonderful read." (Time Out)

"With sensitivity and vision, novelist Tim Winton creates an Australian classic that takes the listener into the world of two wholly believable working-class families in post-WWII Perth. The Pickles family inherits, but cannot afford to keep, Cloudstreet, a rambling, ramshackled house – so they take in the Lambs as their boarders. The Pickles are an irreligious, indolent lot, while the Lambs are pious and hard-working. Peter Hosking's performance is true to Winton's unsentimental exploration into humankind's ability to love and survive amid adversity. Hosking handles the mundane and the mystical with equal assurance. His characterizations, including an Aboriginal ghost and a talking pig, are earthy, real, and frequently hilarious. Hosking makes the most of Winton's honesty, wit, and original imagery." (AudioFile Magazine)
