Inhaltsangabe: Arthur and Waldo were born twins and spent their childhood, their youth, middle-age and retirement together. They shared everything, even a girl, but their view of things differed. Waldo saw everything and understood little. Arthur was the fool who didn't bother to look. He understood.
WINNER OF THE NOVEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE
In The Solid Mandala Patrick White draws a telling and touching portrait of twin brothers. Waldo is the competent man of reason; he sees himself as the superior intellect. Arthur, accepted as a half-wit, is the innocent, God's fool, loving and outgoing in a blundering way. As they compete with and care for each other through half a century, their lives are inextricably intertwined - the two sides of man's nature forming a totality.
'He is more like Dostoevsky than Thomas Mann: his novels are maelstroms of the soul whose power resides in the nightmare detail which assails their protagonists. They testify to the beauty and contortion of the spirit as few others this century have done' Sunday Telegraph
'His most finished and powerful work' Sunday Times
'Wonderfully fresh and human...full of exhilarating energy and wit' Saturday Review
