Praise for On Patrick White

On Patrick White is ultimately a love letter to its subject. It is a welcome celebration of a writer who laid bare his own contradictions in order to expose ours, and who continues to evade categorisation.’ —Sydney Morning Herald

‘One might wish it longer – the truncated nature of the enterprise means too much literary ground is traversed too breathlessly – but no one would wish it less urgently impassioned.’ —Weekend Australian

‘This splendid latest instalment in Black Inc.’s Writers on Writers series is an innovative critical reappraisal of White ... a moving tribute to White’s devastating skill with language, and an enlightening insight into the nature of literary influence.’ —Australian Book Review
