Product description

Review

"Miraculously good." -- Kate Saunders The Times "Grant's salty sweet memoir...is inflected with the Jamaican patois spoken by his parents, and is a classic of its kind." -- Nicholas Shakespeare Daily Telegraph "White won the Novel prize for literature in 1973 but has been poorly neglected since; perhaps [this book] will help put the record straight." -- Claire Allfree Metro "To read it now is like encountering a new work by, say, William Faulkner." -- Nicholas Shakespeare Daily Telegraph "Assured and finely textured." -- Oliver Dennis Literary Review

Review

'The outstanding figure in Australian fiction.' (The New York Times)

'One of the greatest magicians of fiction ... White's scope is vast and his invention endless.' (The Observer)

'Patrick White is, in the finest sense, a world novelist. His themes are catholic and complex and he pursues them with a single-minded energy and vision.' (The Guardian) --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
