"When I was rising eighteen I persuaded my parents to let me return to Australia and at least see whether I could adapt myself to life on the land before going up to Cambridge." -- Patrick White
Patrick Victor Martindale White (28 May 1912 — 30 September 1990), an Australian author, was widely regarded as a major English-language novelist of the 20th century. From 1935 until his death, he published 12 novels, two short-story collections and eight plays.
White's fiction freely employs shifting narrative vantage points and a stream of consciousness technique. In 1973, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature...the only Australian to have been awarded the prize. The Vivisector was posthumously shortlisted for the Lost Man Booker Prize in 2010.
