The Screen Guide

The first Australian citizen to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, Patrick White endured a life where it seemed his work was criticised more than it was praised. At one point White was described as ‘Australia’s most unreadable novelist’. Today he is regarded by many as one of the leading Australian authors of the 20th century. Monday 28 May, 2012 marks 100 years since White’s birth. In the lead up to this anniversary, Artscape’s PATRICK WHITE: WILL THEY READ ME WHEN I'M DEAD? looks back at a great Australian writer’s life through interviews with some of his biggest fans, critics and the man himself.
