These six short novels and stories achieve the majesty and power of the best of Patrick White’s great novels.

They probe beneath the surface of events – a sexual lapse, the unaccustomed climate of a foreign country, interruptions in a cherished routine, a death, a toothache – to expose a deeper, truer reality.
Industry Reviews
'The Cockatoos...is superb. It is a slow, beautiful dance of love and death.' * Chicago Tribune Book World *
'[White's] style in this collection of stories is taut and his language knowing, almost savage, in its ironies. Never does he swerve from a tone of complete authority, nor are his portrayals of human frailty ever less than bitingly perceptive.' * Baltimore Sun *
'To read Patrick White...is to touch a source of power, to move through areas made new and fresh, to see men and women with a sharpened gaze.' * Daily Telegraph (London) *
'White is a shifty, complex artist with the ability to hit and run at any point in his narrative - maintaining a distance from emotional involvement while inexorably tightening those screws.' * Kirkus Reviews *
'White's work is a towering achievement' * Courier-Mail *
