Tells the story of Alex Gray, a woman possessed by several varied personalities, and who sees life through a shifting kaleidoscope of reality.
The last Patrick White novel published in his lifetime, Memoirs of Many in One presents the eccentric, often fantastical recollections of the ageing actor, Alex Xenophon Demirjian Gray.
These are ‘edited’ by the writer Patrick White, her friend and executor, who is often the target of her scorn. Witty and affecting, Memoirs reveals another side of White’s fiction even as it echoes many of the themes running through his work.
As White sifts through the stories, he is reminded of his own approaching death.
