From Australia's first Nobel Prize-winning author – Patrick White's third novel is a tour de force.

With the death of her mother, middle-aged Theodora Goodman contemplates the desert of her life. Freed from the trammels of convention, she leaves Australia for a European tour and becomes involved with the residents of a small French hotel. But creating other people's lives, even in love and pity, can lead to madness. Her ability to reconcile joy and sorrow is an unbearable torture to her. On the journey home, Theodora finds there is little to choose between the reality of illusion and the illusion of reality. She looks for peace, even if it is beyond the borders of insanity.

'Patrick White's third novel is a brilliant, original and highly intelligent piece of work. It is also, thank heaven, gay and witty – as well as tragic, sometimes profound.'
The New York Times Book Review
