Patrick White : a life by David Marr( Book )

32 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The award-winning and bestselling biography of Australia's only Nobel Prize-winner for Literature. 'I think this book should be called The Monster of All Time. But I am a monster . . .' Patrick White Patrick White, winner of the Nobel Prize and author of more than a dozen novels and plays - including Voss, The Vivisector and The Twyborn Affair - lived an extraordinary life. David Marr's brilliant biography draws not only on a wide range of original research but also on the single most difficult and important source of all: the man himself. In the weeks before his death, White read the final manuscript, which for richness of detail, authority and balance is stunning.Throughout his exciting narrative, Marr explores the roots of White's writing and unearths the raw material of his remarkable art. He makes plain the central fact of White's life as an artist: the homosexuality that formed his view of himself as an outcast and stranger able to penetrate the hearts of both men and women. Gracefully written and exhaustively researched, Patrick White is a biography of classic excellence - sympathetic, objective, penetrating and as blunt, when necessary, as White himself

"David Marr examines the issues surrounding the recent seizure of artworks by NSW Police from Bill Henson's exhibition. Censorship and the arts. The Australian Prime Minister called them absolutely revolting. Their removal from a Sydney art gallery was hailed by the Daily Telegraph as a Victory for Decency. Cate Blanchett and members of the arts community claimed charges laid over them would affect Australia's cultural reputation. Only now do we have the opportunity to hear the full story behind the Bill Henson photographs, which grabbed national attention in May 2008 when 20 images were removed from an exhibition and the photographer was investigated for child pornography. David Marr, author of Dark Victory and the award-winning biography Patrick White: A Life, examines the pornography/art debate with exclusive interviews with Bill Henson, members of the NSW police force, child abuse campaigners and important figures in the Australian arts scene. The book contains a colour plate section reproducing photographs from the exhibition at the centre of these events."--Provided by publisher

In dazzling style, he shows how this brilliant recruiter and formidable campaigner mastered first the unions and then the party in pursuit of an ambition he set himself in childhood: to be Prime Minister of Australia. Bill Shorten is now a contender. But where do his loyalties lie? Is he a defender of Labor values in today's Australia, or is he a shape-shifter, driven entirely by politics? And does this product of the old world of union intrigue have what it takes to defeat Malcolm Turnbull and lead the country? Marr reveals a man we hardly know: the Napoleon of the factions, a virtuoso with numbers and a strategist of skill whom Labor has backed to return the party to power."--Publisher's description
