Yellow Notebook: Diaries Volume One, 1978-1986 (Hardcover)

Yellow Notebook: Diaries Volume One, 1978-1986 By Helen Garner Cover Image
Currently unavailable from publisher and distributor


Bold, original and never one to shy away from the truth, Helen Garner's writing has shaped Australian literature. The author has kept a diary for almost all her life. But until now, those exercise books filled with her thoughts, observations, frustrations and joys have been locked away, out of bounds, in a laundry cupboard. Finally, Garner has opened her diaries and invited readers into the world behind her novels and works of non-fiction. Recorded with frankness, humor and steel-sharp wit, these accounts of her everyday life provide an intimate insight into the work of one of Australia's greatest living writers. Volume one, traversing 1978-1986, takes readers through Garner's life following the publication of the seminal Australian novel Monkey Grip, to France and shows the reader a different side of the author.
