'In this magnificent novel Patrick White shows us the flux of power and dependency, the ultimate nuances of love and hatred that fester beneath the surface of family relationships. With profound truthfulness he dramatizes the universal themes of love, loneliness, old age and death, the necessity for and the impossibility of love, through one of the most memorable central characters in modern fiction.'
