Beroep skrywer

Patrick Victor Martindale White (28 Mei 191230 September 1990) was 'n Australiese skrywer wat van 1935 tot 1987 twaalf romans, drie kortverhaalbundels en agt toneelstukke gepubliseer het.

White se prosa maak gebruik van humor, verskuiwende narratiewe waarnemingspunte en bewussynstroom tegnieke. In 1973 is hy bekroon met die Nobelprys vir Letterkunde,[1] "vir 'n epiese en sielkundige narratiewe kuns wat 'n nuwe kontinent in die letterkunde ingebring het", soos per die Sweedse Akademie[2]. Hy is die enigste Australiër wat tot op hede met die prys bekroon is (J. M. Coetzee het die toekenning in 2003 as 'n Suid-Afrikaanse burger gewen, voordat hy in 2006 'n Australiese burger geword het). White was ook die eerste ontvanger van die Miles Franklin-toekenning.
