Details

White may be the great modern writer about whom the least is known: winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, author of more than a dozen novels and many other books, a powerful craggy, uncompromising spokesman for (and against) an Australia he both hated and needed. He was also a man known for long-held grudges and strained loyalities more than for lasting friendships. David Marr’s biography has been highly praised ‘He has managed to explore the nature of an exceptionally difficult and complex man, illuminate his writing, inform us about Anglo-Australian attitudes and remind us that originality and brilliance are seldom comfortable, all with humour and wisdom.’

‘The most readable, sympathetic and comprehensive literary biography of recent years.’

Softcover, 731pgs, photographs, notes, index. Very good, slightly creased cover spine, slight foxing some parts. 195mm x 260mm
