Christos Tsiolkas on Patrick white
Tsiolkas, Christos, 1965-2018
This is an introduction to the Nobel Prize winning writer's work that identifies its distinctly Australian point of view and accounts passionately for what White's novels mean to readers now. Patrick White, the un-Australian writer who did more than any other writer in the twentieth century to create an imaginative language that we can call Australian, who unshackled us from the demand that we write as the English do, who recognised, through his own alienation and also through his profound love for his partner, that we were a migrant and mongrel nation forging our own culture and our own language. Christos Tsiolkas spent a year of discovery and rediscovery reading Patrick White. In this passionate and original book, he shows how the Nobel Prize winner's work still speaks to us.
