Book Details

Format: EPUB

Protection: DRM

Language: English

From the time when he was a little boy, Patrick White wrote letters – brilliant, gossipy, funny, angry, heartfelt letters. When he died in 1990 at the age of 78, between 2, 500 and 3, 000 of them survived, scattered – and often treasured – all over the world. In the course of producing his much-admired biography of White, David Marr tracked down most of them. Now, with sensitivity and skill, he has assembled a rich selection from the letters to present a fascinating portrait of White in his unihibited words – as a writer, as a friend (or enemy), as a man deeply and painfully engaged with his world.
