A sample of the information from the book’s cover:
When Patrick White returned to his native land in 1948 he set out single handedly to create the Australian novel. Today he is widely regarded as the keeper of the national conscience....

Voss, Riders in the Chariot, The Eye of the Storm and many other masterpieces won White the Nobel Prise for Literature in 1973. Ever since, in these superb essays, articles and speeches, he has spoken out. Addressing Aboriginal rights, the environment, nuclear war and the urgent need for Australia, a ‘reactionary colonial sheep run’ to become a modern democratic republic he has been dismissed as a ‘bitter old man’ and acclaimed as a prophet. Yet he can never be ignored. For whether he is morning Hiroshima, celebrating the Greek soul, boycotting the Bicentennial or savaging shallow, greedy politicians. White’s is a voce of angry unforgettable power.
