HAPPY VALLEY

Winner, Australian Literature Society Gold Medal, 1941

Introduction by Peter Craven

Patrick White’s magnificent debut novel—first published 1939, long out of print and now a Text Classic.

Based on Patrick White’s own experiences in the early 1930s as a jackaroo at Bolaro, near Adaminaby in south-eastern New South Wales, Happy Valley paints a portrait of a community in a desolate landscape.
It is a jagged and restless study of small-town and country life.

White was twenty-seven when Happy Valley
was published by George C. Harrop in London.
This mesmerising first novel gives us a prolonged glimpse of literary genius in the making. It won the Australian Literature Society Gold Medal in 1941, but White did not allow the novel to be republished in English in his lifetime.
