9780099578345: The Hanging Garden (Vintage Classics)

Two children are brought to a wild garden on the shores of Sydney Harbour to shelter from the Second World War. The boy's mother has died in the Blitz. The girl is the daughter of a Sydney woman and a Communist executed in a Greek prison. In wartime Australia, these two children form an extraordinary bond as they negotiate the dangers of life as strangers abandoned on the far side of the world.

Patrick White died before his novel could be completed, leaving behind a masterpiece in the making.

Review:

"It is frustrating and tantalising that The Hanging Garden is left, well, hanging" (Robert Macfarlane Sunday Times)

"[A] coherent and polished read, shrewd and tender about its two protagonists... Arresting." (Richard Davenport-Hines Spectator)

"What is instantly apparent is White's mastery of his art. He does what so many other writers ought to be able to do easily but often can't, which is set a scene economically and vividly." (Alan Taylor Glasgow Herald)

Book Description:

Two children negotiate the dangers of life as World War Two evacuees in this unfinished novel from the Nobel Prize-winning Patrick White, published for the first time in 2012
