David Marr reports on the likely publication by Random House Australia of Patrick's White novel The Hanging Garden. The novel, held in manuscript form by the National Library of Australia, was written in 1981 as the first part of a projected three-part novel. Marr writes that White abandoned the novel 'in the middle of 1981 to plunge into politics and theatre'.
