Riders in the Chariot by Patrick White
Random House Group 1996

A Jewish refugee scholar, a half-caste painter, a washerwoman and the innocent spinster Miss Hare, alone in the abandoned wilderness of the mansion Xanadu, are Patrick White's riders. Each rider is a misfit - outcasts all. Their stories become a study of love and hate, of good and evil; evil as epitomized by the Holocaust, but also the persecution everywhere of those who see a vision by those who don't, of the publicly weak by the publicly strong.
Patrick White was born in London. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1973.
