Two rural families flee to the city and find themselves sharing a great, breathing, shuddering joint called Cloudstreet, where they begin their lives from scratch. For 20 years, they roister and rankle, laugh and curse until the roof over their heads becomes a home for their hearts.More

"One of those rare novels that warm the heart, as well as spark the imagination." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Peter Hosking's performance is true to Winton's unsentimental exploration into humankind's ability to love and survive amid adversity....His characterizations, including an aboriginal ghost and a talking pig, are earthy, real, and frequently hilarious." (AudioFile)

An Aussie beauty!
All of them because each character is like someone we already know
This book made me laugh out loud many times and chuckle at the colloquial expressions so many times yet all of this was set against the Aussie battler making good where he could and taking it on the chin when he/she faced a set back.
Just great narration of this wildly amusing but poignant story.
As an Aussie living abroad for many years, I have missed the wonderful expressions which offer a rye smile or a real laugh.
A beautiful book
