The Living and the Dead

Author(s): PATRICK WHITE

Fiction - General

To hesitate on the edge of life or to plunge in and risk change - this is the dilemma explored in "Living And The Dead". Patrick White's second novel is set in thirties London and portrays the complex ebb and flow of relationships within the Standish family. Mrs Standish, ageing but still beautiful, is drawn into secret liaisons, while her daughter Eden experiments openly and impulsively with left-wing politics and love affairs. Only the son, Elyot, remains an aloof and scholarly observer - until dramatic events shock him into sudden self-knowledge.
