One Day I'll Remember This: Diaries 1987-1995

Author(s): Helen Garner


Helen Garner's second volume of diaries charts a tumultuous stage in her life. Beginning in 1987, as she embarks on an affair that she knows will be all-consuming, and ending in 1995 with the publication of The First Stone and the bombshell that followed it, Garner reveals the inner life of a woman in love and a great writer at work. With devastating honesty, she grapples with what it means for her sense of self to be so entwined with another--how to survive as an artist in a partnership that is both thrilling and uncompromising. And through it all we see the elevating, and grounding, power of work.  

Matilda Bookshop Review

In this second volume of diaries, we see the bones of extraordinary writing, and an extraordinary writer, laid bare. The diary charts a near decade of immense creative output from Garner and it also sees her in the throes of a vertiginous love affair with another celebrated author. Garner turns her clear-eyed attention to friendship, dreams, loving, the creative process, all while struggling for a room of one's own in an all-consuming relationship. I devoured this. Not a sentence out of place. Molly
