內容簡介

Letters are the devil, and I always hope that any I have written have been destroyed."--Patrick White Patrick White spent his whole life writing letters. He wanted them all burnt, but thousands survive to reveal him as one of the greatest letter-writers of his time. "Patrick White: Letters" is an unexpected and final volume of prose by Australia's most acclaimed novelist. Only a few scraps of White's letters have been published before. From the aftermath of the First World War until his death in 1990, letters poured from White's pen: they are shrewd, funny, dramatic, pigheaded, camp, and above all, hauntingly beautiful. He wrote novels to sway a hostile world, but letters were for friends. The culmination of ten years' work and reflection by David Marr, author of the well-received biography "Patrick White: A Life," the volume tells the story of White's life in his own words. These are the letters of a great writer, a profound critic, a gossip with the sharpest eyes and tongue, a man who loved and hated ferociously, a keen cook, an angry patriot, and a believer never free of doubt. "A literary milestone."--"Kirkus Reviews" "Mean-spirited and brilliant, the 600 letters collected here offer real insight into the life of the Nobel-Prize winning Australian author. White's venom is matched by his torment, and the whole volume is redeemed by outstanding writing."--"Publisher's Weekly" ("Best Books 96") " T]hose who come to these letters after having read Marr's biography will expect more than shop talk from the master novelist. They will expect the bracing bitchiness of a master curmudgeon. And they will not be disappointed."--Frank Wilson, "Philadelphia Inquirer" Patrick White (1912-1990), Australian novelist and playwright, won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1973. His many novels include "Voss," "The Twyborn Affair," and Riders "in the Chariot
