"Hurtle Duffield, a painter, coldly dissects the weaknesses of any and all who enter his circle. His sister's deformity, a grocer's moonlight indiscretion, the passionate illusions of the women who love him - all are used as fodder for his art. It is only when Hurtle meets an egocentric adolescent whom he sees as his spiritual child does he experience a deeper, more treacherous emotion in this tour de force of sexual and psychological menace that sheds brutally honest light on the creative experience." --Publisher
The solid mandala, a novel by Patrick White( Book )

100 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in English and Polish and held by 1,387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur and Waldo Brown were born twins and spent their childhood, their youth, middle-age and retirement together. They shared everything, even a girl, but their view of things differed. Waldo, a retired librarian, saw everything and understood little. Arthur was the fool who didn't bother to look. He understood. The book is set in Sydney, Australia in the early 20th century. The two men, sons of English immigrants, are never fully accepted by others even in their old age. They walk holding hands and this causes a stir among the local Aussies. Their somewhat sad lives are rather dull and drab

Memoirs of many in one, by Alex Xenophon Demirjian Gray by Patrick White( Book )

26 editions published between 1986 and 2019 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What at first glance, for Nobelist White, reads like a romp--broadly comic and seemingly flyweight--is yet a book quite consistent with the theme of personal transubstantiation that has involved the author in other, more serious modes (The Twyborn Affair). Alex Gray is an old woman and old friend of Patrick White. She has had--in vivid fantasy if not in fact--an extraordinary life, liberally soaked in reincarnation. She's been a Greek Orthodox nun; an internationally scandalous "character"; she's going on a theatrical tour of the Australian outback as an Isadora Duncan-ish interpretrix; she's involved in a London avant-garde theater troop (funny); she befriends and then kidnaps a bum from the park, believing him to be the Messiah. And all these scenes she records tersely but colorfully in a notebook--a literary property that one day will be handled by her executor, Patrick White. Except that White seems to be in league with Alex's drab and beleaguered spinster daughter Hilda in regretfully coming to the opinion that Alex has flipped her wig. Alex, however, knows better: "According to the vision of myself in the glass I could not be dismissed as a geriatric nut. Certainly ravaged, I still radiated the strength of will of those who are being saved up for some final scene in the terrifying theatre of life. You couldn't refer to 'death,' as Hilda and Patrick might if they dared abandon their bourgeois discretion"--which oh so subtly seems to deliver a lampooned White self-portrait--a prig, scribbling in a desperate attempt to justify his staleness--that in fact is a sly explanation of the ideas of multifariousness White's been working out in his latest endeavors. Seeming fluff--but look again (and as always savor the startling twists of White's style)."--Kirkus

Set in London, the main characters are a brother and sister, Elyot and Eden Standish. It is Eden who represents the living. Erratic, unpredictable, easily hurt, she has the saving grace of not walling herself off from experience. Her brother, consciously intelligent and sensitive, never really touches the world. In theory he longs to immerse himself, in practice he always shrinks away. It is Eden who, in an era of professed socialist and egalitarian ideals, genuinely falls in love with a poor man, the brother of the family servant, and who suffers when he dies in the Spanish civil war
