Summary

"Patrick White, winner of the Nobel Prize and author of more than a dozen novels and plays - including Voss, The Vivisector and The Twyborn Affair - lived an extraordinary life. David Marr's brilliant biography draws not only on a wide range of original research but also on the single most difficult and important source of all: the man himself. Gracefully written and exhautively researched, Patrick White is a biography classic excellence - sympathetic, objective, penetrating and as blunt, when necessary, as White himself."--Backcover.
