Book – February’s read

It is a new month and this is the second suggested reading for Bourgeois Book Club.  Cloudstreet was first published in 1991 and is a novel, set in Australia.

WINTON, Tim. Cloudstreet.  Melbourne:  Penguin Books, 2007.

Tim Winton is an Australian author born in 1960.  I understand that he has published over 25 books, including children’s books and he has also written many short stories.   Cloudstreet was adapted as a play (2011) and was released as a mini-series on ABC Television at that time.   It is now available on DVD or CD from ABC shop (Australian Broadcasting Corporation).   Winton has published work with both Penguin Books and Pan Macmillan Australia.

“A generous watery epic …” (Independent)

“A river of life Australia family sage …” (The Guardian)

“A seductive celebration of human oddity, resilience and love … “(Independent on Sunday)

I hope you enjoy the read – 426 pages.
