      God, I loved this book.I've only read two or three of Patrick White's novels, but even 'The Tree of Man' alone would have been enough to draw me to the life of the genius who created it. I rarely read non-fiction, and even more rarely biography (obviously). It could be that this is only the second literary biography I've read - the other that I can recall being Edmund White's 'Genet'. The commonality between the two is that they are about great writers written by great writers. Both books are im [...]

    • Paul Adkin says:

      This has been written with an incredible eye to detail in which the greatness of the great author is unveiled slowly through the anecdotal. It is a portrait of an artist painted on a backdrop of mundane ordinariness in which the greyness of its routines is shattered by the bright spotlights of White's genius and achievements, and made dramatic by the vociferation of those who seemed to resent and loath that genius, or wanted to spoon off the cream of his success for themselves. Or the screeching [...]

    • Guy Cranswick says:

      An exceptional biography and Marr's writing is excellent. his insight into White is deep.

    • George says:

      An excellent biography that gives the reader some understanding of White the man, what made him become a writer and where his writing came from. Marr gives the reader a very good idea of who White was without any trace of flattery, adulation or exaggeration. He does this by quoting White, via the 2,500 letters Marr reviewed, via White's recorded spoken word, via passages his White's novels and via interviews with the people White had dealings. Marr's description is of a great and generous humani [...]

      I found the biog hard to put down, unlike White's fiction which I find easy to put down! Marr has written a scholarly yet entertaining biography, and you really feel you come to know something about an Australian icon - our only Nobel laureate in literature.In everything i have read (including White's own portrait of himself, Flaws In The Glass) he comes across as a horrible man - a misogynist, but with some political principles with which I might agree.Nevertheless, that is not the point of lit [...]

    • Roger Norman says:

      This is a magnificent book about a difficult, objectionable and not easily liked man who wrote not easily liked books, in a country that could never quite accept him, nor he it. What makes the books difficult is a scrupulous, demanding, idiosyncratic approach to character and scenery that makes no concession to the ordinary reader – you must follow the writer through the dense jungle of his perceptions, and if you cotton to them, or trust him enough to persevere, you might get to like it very [...]

    • Deon Payne says:

      David Marr is one of Australia's most eloquent journalists and in this book illuminates the extraordinary Australian writer Patrick White - one of this nations most decorated authors and yet sadly when I was studying English at university many years ago his novels were never discussed. I only chanced upon this book for sale at a market stall for $1 and what a treasure! I doubt that I would have relished an audience with Mr White personally due to his acidic tongue. In fact the cover has a quote [...]

    • Gary Daly says:

      I knew more about Patrick White from myth, legend and gossip and I recall when this biography was originally released in 1991. At that time I remember thinking that I would never read a Patrick White novel because it wasn't my kind of book. And at the time I couldn't push past the page 3 girl. Anyway I have read 'Tree of Life' and 'Voss' (a favourite). Tree of Life was an excellent but exhausting read. I did enjoy it and the bleakness and the characters who inhabit his morbid cancerous world are [...]

    • Cameron says:

      You can't beat a great writer writing about another great writer. Marr does a superlative job capturing the life of this incredible Australian, warts and all. White is tremendously complex, and definitely not always likeable, right to the end, and Marr has perfectly captured so many aspects of him and his life. A brilliant piece of work.

    • Jill Scanlon says:

      I was enthralled. It was like reading one of those action packed fantasy trilogies, un- put- down-able. I've always struggled to read White's book but I found this biography instantly gratifying. Well done David Marr.

      Gotcha!

    • George Ilsley says:

      If a person is a tiny bit obsessed with Patrick White, and that person happens to be me, then this lengthy biography is a treat. Long and detailed and absolutely thrilling.

    • Vida Carden-coyne says:

      Gobsmackingly well written. Mr Marr wrote with a sensitivity, insight and respect that is a tribute to he kind of person he must be. Amazing.

    • Alistair says:

      You don't have to like White's novels to be entertained by this masterful biography. (I find Patrick almost unreadable), however I really enjoyed this biography.
