Patrick White : a life by David Marr( Book )

31 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. Gracefully written and exhautively researched, Patrick White is a biography classic excellence - sympathetic, objective, penetrating and as blunt, when necessary, as White himself."--Back cover

The Henson case by David Marr( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Political animal the making of Tony Abbott by David Marr( Recording )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The journalist who dissected the persona of Kevin Rudd in 2010 turns his gaze to Tony Abbott. Tony Abbott: prime minister in waiting. David Marr: the nation's leading biographer and investigative journalist. In Quarterly Essay 47, David Marr goes beyond the clichés - Dr No, mad monk, gaffe-prone, budgie-smuggling gym junkie - to look at the man as he is and reveal what kind of prime minister he might be. This is a unique portrait of a unique politician. Marr shows Abbott as part reactionary and part pragmatist, part fighter and part charmer, deeply religious and deeply political. But is Abbott a figure from the past or a leader for the future? Following the explosive Power Trip: The Political Journey of Kevin Rudd, this is certain to be the most discussed political writing of the year
