Description

In May 1992, the Sydney literary news was full of Tim Winton's success and his novel, Cloudstreet. And I thought it an omen. Winton was thirty-one, and I was thirty. He'd grown up in W.A., and so had I. He'd just won his second Miles Franklin Award. And I was having a second crack at being a writer!

Cloudstreet by Tim Winton - Omen or Inspiration is a blog post from the Tall And True writers' website, written and narrated by Robert Fairhead.
