Description

This new edition of Helen Garner's collected short fiction celebrates the seventy-fifth birthday of one of Australia's most loved authors. These stories-that delve into the complexities of love and longing, of the pain, darkness and joy of life-are all told with her characteristic sharpness of observation, honesty and humour. Each one a perfect piece, together they showcase Garner's mastery of the form.

Reviews

`A perfect introduction for first-timers who have not yet experienced the pleasures of Garner's writing.' * Sydney Morning Herald * `Garner's stories share characteristics of the postcard: they flash before us carefully recorded images that remind us of harsher realities not pictured. And like postcards they are economically written, a bit of conversation is transcribed, a memory recalled, an event noted, scenes pass as if viewed from a train-momentarily, distinct and tantalising in their beauty.' * New York Times * `Garner is a natural storyteller.' * James Wood, New Yorker *
