The B List with Bri Lee and Helen Garner
Each month Bri is in conversation with a contemporary author followed by a Q&A session.

Author Helen Garner joins the book club to talk about her third volume of diaries How to End a Story: Diaries: 1995–1998.

Helen Garner’s third volume of diaries is an account of a woman fighting to hold on to a marriage that is disintegrating around her.

Living with a powerfully ambitious writer who is consumed by his work and trying to find a place for her own spirit to thrive, she rails against the confines. At the same time, she is desperate to find the truth in their relationship — and the truth of her own self.

This is a harrowing story, a portrait of the messy, painful, dark side of love lost, of betrayal and sadness and the sheer force of a woman’s anger. But it is also a story of resilience and strength, strewn with sharp insight, moments of joy and hope, the immutable ties of motherhood and the regenerative power of a room of one’s own.

Join Bri and Helen for an honest and powerful discussion about life, loss, beauty, connection, and what it is to be human.
