"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 )

91 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,376 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

"With the death of her mother, middle-aged Theodora Goodman contemplates the desert of her life. Freed from the trammels of convention, she leaves Australia for a European tour and becomes involved with the residents of a small French hotel. But creating other people's lives, even in love and pity, can lead to madness. Her ability to reconcile joy and sorrow is an unbearable torture to her. On the journey home, Theodora finds there is little to choose between the reality of illusion and the illusion of reality. She looks for peace, even if it is beyond the borders of insanity."--Provided by publisher

The living and the dead by Patrick White( Book )

71 editions published between 1941 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Happy valley; a novel by Patrick White( Book )

42 editions published between 1939 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1939, Happy Valley is set in a small country town in the Snowy Mountains. Based on Patrick White's own experiences in the early 1930s as a jackaroo at Bolaro, near Adaminaby in south-eastern New South Wales, Happy Valley paints a portrait of a community in a desolate landscape. It is a jagged and restless study of small-town and country life. White was twenty-seven when Happy Valley was published by George C. Harrop in London. This mesmerising first novel gives us a prolonged glimpse of literary genius in the making. It won the Australian Literature Society Gold Medal in 1941, but White did not allow the novel to be republished in English in his lifetime. Its appearance now in the Text Classics series is a major literary event. Happy Valley is the missing piece in the extraordinary jigsaw of White's work
