Cloudstreet by Tim Winton
Macmillan 1992

Two families, the hardworking, God-fearing Lambs and the drinking and gambling Pickles, escape their diverse rural catastrophes to make do in midst of the city. It is rare to find a novel which so successfully combines family observation with unsugary charm and such easygoing cleverness, stirred into the entertainment of the people in the street.
Tim Winton was born in Perth.
