Last year, when we asked our customers to nominate The 50 Must Read Australian Novels, Tim Winton’s Cloudstreet was the most popular choice. In fact, Cloudstreet blitzed the field, winning by a country mile.
That is why we believe this beautiful 21st anniversary, limited edition of Cloudstreet – signed by Tim Winton, himself – will sell out in a flash. Penguin Australia have only produced 250 copies. Each is numbered and signed; each is a rare object, an investment – not that you’ll ever want to sell it. (But it’s nice to know that your prized possession is probably getting more valuable by the second.)
Once these 250 copies go, that will be that. So don’t dawdle. And don’t fret, Booktopia will pack your copy very well to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
This is a very special celebratory edition of this quintessential modern Australian classic.
A collector’s piece, each copy of this limited edition numbered, slip-cased, section-sewn hardback is personally signed by Tim Winton.
The production values on this beautiful edition are exceptionally high. The book is printed on pristine paper in three-tone text with silver end-papers and pearlescent jacket and slipcase papers, with spot gloss on the box itself to give an enamelled look. The printing on the spine is in gold foil.
This edition is for both lovers of Tim Winton’s work and for collectors and investors.
If you still want to celebrate Cloudstreet’s birthday but don’t have the cash to splash out on the collector’s edition, Penguin are publishing a beautiful hardcover edition – a perfect gift (especially for relatives living overseas).
Twenty-one years on, Cloudstreet is still Australia’s favourite novel.
About: After two separate catastrophes, two very different families leave the country for the bright lights of Perth. The Lambs are industrious, united and – until God seems to turn his back on their boy Fish – religious. The Pickleses are gamblers, boozers, fractious and unlikely landlords.
Chance, hardship and the war force them to swallow their dignity and share a great, breathing, shuddering joint called Cloudstreet. Over the next twenty years, they struggle and strive, laugh and curse, come apart and pull together under the same roof, and try as they can to make their lives.
Winner of the Miles Franklin Award and recognised as one of the greatest works of Australian literature, Cloudstreet is Tim Winton’s sprawling, comic epic about luck and love, fortitude and forgiveness, and the magic of the everyday.
