One book on the list:
CloudstreetRead about another book on Frostrup's list.
by Tim Winton
This Man Booker-nominated Australian author has never disappointed me but this first novel remains my favourite. The story of two families forced by financial woe to share a rambling home in the Melbourne suburbs is brimful of wonderful characters and radiates with the warmth and generosity of the human spirit and the pathos of individual lives. Never sentimental Winton is a masterful storyteller with an enormous heart.
Cloudstreet was the best novel I read in 2005.
