Product description

Review

A generous watery epic . . . Winton is just one of the best (Independent)

Imagine Neighbours being taken over by the writing team of John Steinbeck and Gabriel García Márquez and you'll be close to the heart of Winton's impressive tale (Time Out)

Brimful of wonderful characters and radiates with the warmth and generosity of the human spirit and the pathos of individual lives. Never sentimental Winton is a masterful storyteller with an enormous heart (Mariella Frostrup)

A fragmented, hilarious, crude, mystical soap opera. In a rich Australian idiom, Winton lets his characters rip against an evocation of Perth so intense you can smell it (Sunday Telegraph)

He is a novelist, a great one, because against all evidence and odds, he reminds us what it is to be human, and reminds us to be proud of our humanity . . . Winton is a one-man band of genius (Los Angeles Times)

Nothing short of magnificent . . . A wonderful read (New York Times)

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)
