Yellow Notebook: Diaries Vol 1, 1978-87 description

In Helen Garner’s Yellow Notebook we experience one of our greatest writers in raw, unguarded form. We read of her fierce struggle with herself – “No wonder he can’t stand me. I can hardly stand myself” – her writing – “a middle-level craftswoman” – and the diary itself – “What is the point of this diary?” And we revel in her sharp, vivid observations, her biting wit and hard-won wisdom, and the immersive acuity of the thoughtscape she has created and so generously shared.
