Cloudstreet by Tim Winton Summary

Winner of the Miles Franklin Award and recognised as one of the greatest works of Australian literature, Cloudstreetis Tim Winton's sprawling, comic epic about luck and love, fortitude and forgiveness, and the magic of the everyday. 'This is that rare book, a novel of both heart and intellect. It pulses with a sense of wonder and shines with the clear light of truth.' Robert Drewe 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. 'One of the great masterpieces of world fiction.' Philip Hensher 'If you have not read Cloudstreet, your life is diminished . . . if you have not met these characters, this generous community, these tragedies, the humour. It is so wonderful.'

La Gifle by Christos TSIOLKAS Summary

Provocant, urgent, impitoyable, un roman coup de poing, une révélation dans la lignée d'un Don DeLillo ou d'un Jonathan Franzen. Lors d'un barbecue entre amis, un adulte gifle un enfant qui n'est pas le sien. Un incident qui va créer une onde de choc parmi les invités et provoquer une série d'événements explosifs. Mais aussi révéler, derrière les belles apparences, le racisme ordinaire, la drogue, l'alcool, la honte et une extrême solitude. Tour à tour violent et bouleversant de tendresse, un très grand roman qui dresse, avec une formidable lucidité, le tableau d'un Occident en pleine confusion. " Ce roman tient son lecteur sur la brèche, le force à repousser ses limites, à questionner les thèses paresseuses, le provoque et le fait se tortiller de malaise sous l'apparence rassurante d'une lecture passionnante.

Coal creek by Alex Miller Summary

Robert Blewitt, alias Bobby Blue, a vingt ans lorsqu’il rejoint Daniel Collins au sein de la police de Mount Hay, dans l’état du Queensland, Australie. Il fait alors la connaissance d’Esme, l’épouse de Daniel, et de leurs deux filles, Irie et Miriam. Bobby Blue semble emprunter une voie bien éloignée de celle de son enfance libre et orageuse passée dans le bush avec son ami de toujours, Ben Tobin, jeune chien fou à la réputation de mauvais garçon. Condamné par son passé, Ben Tobin devient bientôt la cible de Daniel Collins, esprit étroit et sous influence, peu enclin à ergoter sur la nature du coupable. Bobby Blue se retrouve alors pris au piège entre la loyauté qu’il doit à son supérieur, l’inébranlable amitié qui le lie à Ben Tobin... et l’ardente complicité qu’il entretient avec Irie, adolescente aventureuse qui n’aspire qu’à embrasser les chemins de la tragédie... Un pas de plus dans le bush... Un pas de plus vers Coal Creek et leur destinée à tous s’en trouvera bouleversée. Alex Miller est né en 1936 à Londres. Australien d’adoption, il fut tour à tour garçon de ferme, magasinier, carillonneur, dresseur de chevaux, universitaire, dramaturge et enseignant, avant de publier en 1988 son premier livre. Auteur de dix romans, c’est avec Landscape of Farewell (2007), Lovesong (Phébus, 2012) et surtout Autumn Laing (Phébus, 2013) qu’il acquiert définitivement le statut d’écrivain majeur de son pays. Il reçoit en 2007 le Manning Clark Cultural Award pour sa contribution au rayonnement de la littérature australienne à l’étranger.
