WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ROBERT MACFARLANE

Set in nineteenth-century Australia, Voss is the story of the secret passion between an explorer and a naïve young woman. Although they have met only a few times, Voss and Laura are joined by overwhelming, obsessive feelings for each other. Voss sets out to cross the continent, and as hardships, mutiny and betrayal whittle away his power to endure and to lead, his attachment to Laura gradually increases. Laura, waiting in Sydney, moves through the months of separation as if they were a dream and Voss the only reality.

Review:

"The scenery is wonderfully described by the author... There is an interesting spiritual symmetry between the decline in fate of Voss and the circumstances in which Laura finds herself" (Nudge)

"One of the greatest magicians of fiction ... White's scope is vast and his invention endless" (Observer)

"Patrick White is, in the finest sense, a world novelist. His themes are catholic and complex and he pursues them with a single-minded energy and vision" (Guardian)

"Australia's greatest novelist" (Geoffrey Rush)

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

Book Description:

Hidden love and adventure in the Australian desert - a novel of extraordinary power and virtuosity
