Cloudstreet 25th Anniversary
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Cloudstreet, Tim Winton’s sprawling, comic epic about luck and love, fortitude and forgiveness, and the magic of the everyday. However it may never have been published had it not been for the stranger who chased after Tim with the manuscript he’d left it on a bus in Rome.
