9780099323914: Riders In The Chariot (Vintage Classics)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY DAVID MALOUF

Through the crumbling ruins of the once splendid Xanadu, Miss Hare wanders, half-mad. In the wilderness she stumbles upon an Aborigine artist and a Jewish refugee. They place themselves in the care of a local washerwoman. In a world of pervasive evil, all four have been independently damaged and discarded. Now in one shared vision they find themselves bound together, understanding the possibility of redemption.

Review:

"[A] monumental work [of more than] half a thousand pages -- almost every one of which cries out for quotation" ( New York Times)

" Riders in the Chariot is the most compassionate and the most beautiful of all Patrick White’s works; colours fly everywhere; his words, comic, ecstatic, are like the brushstrokes on a canvas" (Carmen Callil and Colm Tóibín The Modern Library: The 200 Best Novels in English Since 1950)

"This is a book which really defies review; for its analysable qualities are overwhelmed by those imponderables which make a work 'great' in the untouchable sense. It must be read because, like Everest, 'it is there'." ( Guardian)

"The outstanding figure in Australian fiction" ( New York Times)

"Stands out among contemporary novelists like a cathedral surrounded by booths. Its forms, its impulse and its dedication to what is eternal all excite a comparison with religious architecture" ( Sunday Times)

Book Description:

A bold, visionary story of four intertwining lives from the Nobel prizewinning novelist
