Review

"I loved Helen Garner’s second volume of diaries, One Day I’ll Remember This. I would read Garner’s grocery lists; she’s one of my favourites. I must have underlined something on every page." ―Fatima Bhutto, author of The Runaways

“Garner’s self-deprecating reflections are profound and funny. Her dispatches from daily life in the late 80s and early 90s...are relayed in her trademark matter-of-fact prose, always oriented towards truth and self-examination, no matter how painful...One Day I’ll Remember This is a revealing window into the mind of one of Australia’s greatest living writers.” ―Books+Publishing

“The spirituality of these diaries is worth a library of high-minded theology...Their acuity is ultimately healing. You will leave with the impression that you have not so much been looking at Garner’s life as at life itself.” ―Age

"The ordinary in these diaries – the daily, the diurnal, the stumbled-upon, the breathing in and out – is turned into something else through the writer’s extraordinary craft." ―Australian Book Review

"On the page, Garner is uncommonly fierce, though this usually has the effect on me of making her seem all the more likable. I relish her fractious, contrarian streak – she wears it as a chef would a bloody apron – even as I worry about what it would be like to have to face it down." ―Guardian

"What a joy and a privilege it is to dive into the pages of Helen Garner’s second volume of diaries…If you have never read Garner, read them for the sheer beauty of the prose and clarity of her thinking. If, like me, you have devoured everything she has ever written, they will enhance your understanding of her work." ―Nicole Abadee, Good Weekend

"With One Day I’ll Remember This: Diaries 1987-1995, Helen Garner proves once more why anything and everything she writes is a life lesson in courage, acuity and the eviscerating quest for self-knowledge. What unites these three books, apart from sublime writing, is the revelation of the lengths to which women must go to hide their lights – protect yet nourish their secret selves – and the cost of such radical concealment." ―Clare Wright, Age

“Garner is a charming and courageous writer whose distinctive voice exemplifies the range of what is possible in personal writing.” ―Publishers Weekly

“The graceful prose with which she delivers her insights will challenge readers to look at what is happening around them.” ―Library Journal (starred review)

“Garner is a natural storyteller: her unillusioned eye makes her clarity compulsive.” ―New Yorker

“Writes with the humor and precision of Joy Williams, the warmth and ferocity of Elena Ferrante, and the investigative rigor of Janet Malcolm.” ―John Freeman, LitHub

Helen Garner was born in 1942 in Geelong, and was educated there and at Melbourne University. She taught in Victorian secondary schools until 1972, when she was dismissed for answering her students’ questions about sex, and had to start writing journalism for a living.

Her first novel, Monkey Grip, came out in 1977, won the 1978 National Book Council Award, and was adapted for film in 1981. Since then she has published novels, short stories, essays, and feature journalism. Her screenplay The Last Days of Chez Nous was filmed in 1990. Garner has won many prizes, among them a Walkley Award for her 1993 article about the murder of two-year-old Daniel Valerio. In 1995 she published The First Stone, a controversial account of a Melbourne University sexual harassment case. Joe Cinque’s Consolation (2004) was a non-fiction study of two murder trials in Canberra.

In 2006 Helen Garner received the inaugural Melbourne Prize for Literature. Her most recent novel, The Spare Room (2008), won the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Fiction, the Queensland Premier’s Award for Fiction and the Barbara Jefferis Award, and has been translated into many languages.

Helen Garner lives in Melbourne.
