Praise for Helen Garner
andStories

‘Garner is a natural storyteller.’

‘Garner’s stories share characteristics of the postcard: they flash before us carefully recorded images that remind us of harsher realities not pictured. And like postcards they are economically written, a bit of conversation is transcribed, a memory recalled, an event noted, scenes pass as if viewed from a train—momentarily, distinct and tantalising in their beauty.’

‘A perfect introduction for first-timers who have not yet experienced the pleasures of Garner’s writing.’
