From the book:
Patrick White's brilliant 1961 novel, set in an Australian suburb, intertwines four deeply different lives. An Aborigine artist, a Holocaust survivor, a beatific washer-woman, and a childlike heiress are each blessed - and stricken - with visionary experiences that may or may not allow them to transcend the machinations of their fellow men. Tender and lacerating, pure and profane, subtle and sweeping.

This is a thick book and it took me while to get into it. But afterwards it really got me. The characters are brilliantly composed and the whole story relating them is beautiful with lots of soul and metaphors. One of the best books I've read!
