Add to Calendar Australia/Melbourne Collect all three volumes of Helen Garner’s diaries An inside look at the work and life of one of Australia's greatest living writers.

Helen Garner has kept a diary almost all her life. Now she’s inviting readers into the world behind her work.

Yellow Notebook (volume one) spans the decade from just after the publication of Monkey Grip. One Day I’ll Remember This (volume two) reveals a woman in love and a great writer at work. The third and final volume, How to End a Story, is a portrait of the pain, anger and humour of the messiness of the end of a marriage.

Garner records her observations, reflections, frustrations and moments of joy with frankness, humour and steel-sharp wit. The beautiful hardbacks make the perfect Christmas present for Australian literature lovers.
