Winner Nita Kibble Literary Award 1997

‘Garner is a storyteller, an observer. Her style is beautifully simple.’
Sydney Morning Herald

‘Helen Garner writes the best sentences in Australia.’
The Bulletin

An extraordinary audiobook of non-fiction, spanning 25 years of work, by one of Australia's great writers.

Helen Garner visits the morgue, and goes cruising on a Russian ship. She sees women giving birth, and gets the sack for teaching her students about sex. She attends a school dance and a gun show. She writes about dreaming, about turning 50 and the storm caused by The First Stone. Her story on the murder of the two-year-old Daniel Valerio wins her a Walkley Award. Garner looks at the world with a shrewd and sympathetic eye. Her non-fiction, with its many voices, is always passionate and compelling. True Stories is an extraordinary audiobook, spanning 25 years of work, by one of Australia’s great writers.
