Just one quote by Patrick White
Patrick Victor Martindale White (London; 28 May 1912 – 30 September 1990; Sydney) was an Australian writer who published 12 novels, three short-story collections, and eight plays, from 1935 to 1987. White's fiction employs humour, florid prose, shifting narrative vantage points and stream of consciousness techniques. In 1973 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, “for an epic and psychological narrative art which has introduced a new continent into literature”, as it says in the Swedish Academy's citation, the only Australian to have been awarded the prize.
