Fans of Helen Garner will love this session. In her published diaries, Helen is unfiltered, unexpurgated, and unconstrained. These volumes reveal the ideas of one of Australia's finest writers bubbling to the surface.
Helen Garner writes novels, stories, screenplays and works of non-fiction. In 2006 she received the inaugural Melbourne Prize for Literature, and in 2016 she won the prestigious Windham-Campbell Prize for non-fiction and the Western Australian Premier's Book Award. In 2019 she was honoured with the Australia Council Award for Lifetime Achievement in Literature. Her books include Monkey Grip, The Spare Room, This House of Grief and Everywhere I Look.
