Journal Entry 1 by AnonymousFriend from Wantirna South, Victoria Australia on Thursday, January 07, 2021
True Stories, Selected non-fiction, is an extraordinary book, spanning twenty-five years of work, by one of Australia's great writers. Helen Garner visits the morgue, and goes cruising on a Russian ship. She sees women giving birth, and gets the sack for teaching her students about sex. She attends a school dance and a gun show. She writes about dreaming, about turning fifty, and the storm caused by The First Stone. Her story on the murder of the two-year-old Daniel Valerio wins her a Walkley Award. Garner looks at the world with a shrewd and sympathetic eye. Her non-fiction, with its many voices, is always passionate and compelling.
