Patrick White could write. Look at this book, it’s about a man who you want to smack but you have to keep reading, you have to see what happens. Wonderful. It is a type of book where you can see why the author won the Nobel Prize. I am upset that I was not introduced to him in college. ...
This book had a powerful impact on me at eighteen and it is hard to admit it has flaws. Still an astonishing study of the artist's mind. White's sentences make me want to run around the room.
