Winner of the 1997 Kibble Award for Literature, True Stories spans twenty-five years of work by one of Australia's great writers. In this extraordinary collection of non-fiction stories, Helen Garner visits the morgue and goes cruising on a Russian ship. She watches 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 fifty and about the storm caused by her book 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 passionate and compelling. 'Helen Garner writes the best sentences in Australia.' Bulletin
