"The outstanding figure in Australian fiction" (New York Times)
"In his major postwar novels, the pain and earnestness of the individual’s quest for ‘meaning and design’ can be felt more intensely than perhaps anywhere else in contemporary Western prose" (Sunday Times)
This mesmerizing, ambitious, lyrical masterpiece is perhaps Nobel Prize-winner Patrick White’s best novel.See all Product Description

In refreshing contrast to much contemporary fiction, the reader is never told what to think about any of the characters. Within the broad confines of the very simple plot, they speak and act for themselves.
It is a measure of the greatness of this novel that, many years after reading it for the first time, I occasionally find myself pondering aspects of the characters and their motivations, as if they were people I knew well. The resonances with some of my own thoughts and motivations are uncanny, and more than a little disturbing.
The going might seem a bit tough at first if you haven't read White before. But believe me, it's worth every minute.
