'She is outstanding in the accuracy of her observations, the intensity of passion ... her radar-sure humour.'
The Washington Post

'In her latest collection of essays, reviews and diary fragments, Garner not only proves the truth of this statement, but demonstrates that it’s not confined to the courtroom. She really does find inspiration in everything. She’s surrounded by it; it’s everywhere she looks ... a collection brimming with highlights.'
Newtown Review of Books

A collection of essays from award-winning author Helen Garner.

I pedal over to Kensington just after dark. As I roll along the lane towards the railway underpass, a young Asian woman on her way home from the station walks out of the tunnel towards me. After she passes there's a stillness, a moment of silent freshness that feels like spring. Helen Garner is one of Australia's greatest writers. Her short non-fiction has enormous range. Spanning 15 years of work, Everywhere I Look is an audiobook full of unexpected moments, sudden shafts of light, piercing intuition, flashes of anger and incidental humour. It takes us from backstage at the ballet to the trial of a woman for the murder of her newborn baby. It moves effortlessly from the significance of moving house to the pleasure of re-reading Pride and Prejudice. Everywhere I Look includes Garner's famous and controversial essay on the insults of age, her deeply moving tribute to her mother and extracts from her diaries, which have been part of her working life for as long as she has been a writer. Everywhere I Look glows with insight. It is filled with the wisdom of life.
