Born in England in 1912, Patrick White became Australia's first Nobel Laureate in Literature. White published 12 novels and nearly 30 short stories during his lifetime, together with a modest number of poems. His great novels, from The aunt's story (1948) to Memoirs of many in one (1986), were written steadily over a period of almost 40 years. His dozen produced dramatic works were written in two distinct periods of activity: from The ham funeral in 1947 to A cheery soul in 1962, and then again from Big toys in 1977 to Shepherd on the rocks in 1987. He published a number of essays, especially in his later years when he became a reluctant activist for the preservation of Centennial Park and other green spaces, for indigenous rights, for an Australian Republic and against nuclear arms. He also published a 1981 autobiography, Flaws in the glass. He was a prolific correspondent, with a selection of his thousands of known letters appearing in David Marr's 1994 publication, Patrick White: letters. White died in 1990. His lifelong partner, Manoly Lascaris, survived him for 13 years, dying in 2003.
