Australian Literature 101: Tim Winton: Cloudstreet
Who tells the story of a country? What story does a country’s national literature tell about its people and its identity? Is there such a thing as Australian literature at all? If there is, Hilary McPhee would be unmistakable as one of its modern ambassadors. The founding director of McPhee Gribble Publishers speaks of one of the imprint’s big successes, and a great exploration of our national voice - Tim Winton’s Cloudstreet - and its sensitive, pensive author. In discussion with Ramona Koval.
