This is an auction for THE HANGING GARDEN by Patrick White.

With a note by David Marr.

“The Hanging Garden is a novel for our time--a story about parentless children, mistreated by a world that, by its lights, intends no harm but nonetheless does enduring damage....David Marr, White's biographer, and others dedicated to White's memory, decided to give us The Hanging Garden. They were right to do so, and we should thank them for it.”
- New York Times Book Review

“The Hanging Garden is a complete, complex, and beautiful portrait, an important addition to classic contemporary fiction.”
- a *** starred *** review in Publishers Weekly (US)

Amazon.com review:

“From the Nobel Prize–winning author comes a vivid, visceral tale of childhood friendship and sexual awakening from beyond the echoes of World War II. Sydney, Australia, 1942: two children, on the cusp of adolescence, have been spirited away from the war in Europe and given shelter in a house on Neutral Bay, taken in by the charity of an widow who wants little to do with them. The boy, Gilbert, has escaped the Blitz. The girl, Eirene, lost her father in a Greek prison. Left to their own devices, the children forge a friendship of startling honesty, forming a bond of uncommon complexity that they sense will shape their destinies for years to come. Patrick White's posthumously discovered novel, The Hanging Garden is a breath-taking and important literary event. Patrick White’s mastery of style and highly inventive storytelling will transport you as the work of few writers can."
