Winner of the Miles Franklin and NBC Awards. From seperate catastrophes 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 twenty years they roister and rankle, laugh and curse until the roof over their heads becomes a home for their hearts. "Nothing short of magnificent ...a wonderful read." -Time Out. "One of those rare novels that warm the heart, as well as spark the imagination." - Kirkus Reviews.
