We are delighted to present in collaboration with Melbourne Writers Festival a special, pre-filmed conversation with one of Australia’s most eminent writers and winner of The Australia Council Lifetime Achievement in Literature Award Helen Garner. From her 1977 debut Monkey Grip – described as a ‘watershed moment’ for Australian culture, to her acclaimed non-fiction including This House of Grief exploring the darkness of Australian suburbia. Her work, the Australian Council wrote, ‘has helped Australia define its identity and has created a genre all of its own.’ Writer and critic Beejay Silcox speaks to her at home in Melbourne about a remarkable writing life.
