Winner of the 1973 Nobel Prize, The Vivisector chronicles the life of egotistic painter, Hurtle Duffield, exploring the relationship between art and the artist.

Hurtle Duffield, a painter, is incapable of loving anything except what he paints. The men and women who court him during his long life are, above all, the victims of his art. He is the vivisector, dissecting their weaknesses with cruel precision: his sister's deformity, a grocer's moonlight indiscretion, and the passionate illusions of his mistress Hero Pavloussi. It is only when Hurtle meets an egocentric adolescent whom he sees as his spiritual child does he experience a deeper, more treacherous emotion in this tour de force of sexual and psychological menace that sheds brutally honest light on the creative experience.

'The Vivisector marks an important milestone in White’s long and fruitful writing career, as well as in Australian and international literature.'
