Recollections of Mr Lascaris relates Vrasidas Karalis' personal recollections of discussions and meetings with Manoly Lascaris, Patrick White's life-partner. In these recollections, Lascaris, an obscure figure in the existing literature on White, appears as a distinct intellectual in his own right, talking about Patrick White, Australia and Greece.His ideas offer new perspectives in the interpretation of White's work and indicate a different understanding of their relationship. This book sheds light on the life and the mind of an extremely enigmatic man who has been overlooked because of his elusive personality and who spent all his life almost ignored under the shadow of Australia's most important writer.
