White's 9th novel is widely regarded to be one of his best, largely owing to the reputation it received from the Swedish Academy when they specifically named it as the book that confirmed his designation as a Literature Laureate. The film was made into a 2011 film starring Geoffrey Rush, Charlotte Rampling and Judy Davis.
