Enhance your purchase
Yellow Notebook: Diaries Volume I, in this elegant audiobook edition, spans about a decade beginning in the late 1970s just after the publication of her first title, Monkey Grip. It will delight Garner fans and those new to her work alike.
Helen Garner 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 audiences into the world behind her novels and works of non-fiction. Yellow Notebook: Diaries Volume I spans a decade beginning in the late 1970s just after the publication of her first novel, Monkey Grip.
With their frankness, humour and steel-sharp wit, these accounts of everyday happenings provide an intimate insight into the life of one of Australia’s greatest writers.
