Postcards from Surfers (Popular Penguin) (out of print)
From one of Australia's most celebrated writers come 11 stories about the complexities of life and love; of looking back and longing; of what it means to be a stranger, on foreign ground and known, told with the piercing familiarity and resonance we have come to expect from Helen Garner. Remarkably honest, often very funny and always woven in ways that surprise, these stories tease out everyday life to show the darkness underneath - but also the possibilities of joy.
Helen Garner has published many works of fiction including Monkey Grip, Cosmo Cosmolino and The Children's Bach. Her most recent books are The First Stone, True Stories, My Hard Heart, The Feel of Stone and Joe Cinque's Consolation.
