Recollections of Mr Manoly Lascaris relates Vrasidas Karalis’ personal reflections of meetings with Manoly Lascaris, Patrick White’s life-partner. Lascaris, an obscure figure in the existing literature on White, appears as a distinct intellectual in his own right. Lascaris’ ideas offer new perspectives on White’s work and present an intimate understanding of their relationship.

This book sheds light on the life and the mind of an enigmatic man who has been overlooked because of his elusive personality, and who spent his life almost ignored under the shadow of Australia’s most important writer.

“Manoly Lascaris was a truly remarkable man – a character Patrick White might have wanted to invent. Vrasidas Karalis has written of him beautifully, with great sympathy. This is an engrossing and wise book, an altogether moving experience.”
