This House of Grief by Helen Garner

Winner, Honorable Mention, 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards, True Crime category. Helen Garner won a 2015 Windham Campbell Prize for her outstanding contribution to international literature.

This account of the competing narratives unfolding in the courtroom during a murder trial has attracted international acclaim. First published in April 2015 it is now released in a handsome B format edition.

'Garner's book is superbly alive to the narrative dynamics of the case; she tells a grim story of unhappy marriage, limited social opportunity, bitter divorce, and spousal grievance...what consumes her are the difficult questions that seem to lie beyond the reach of formal narration: the deepest assumptions of class and gender and power; the problem of how well we ever understand someone else's motives.'--James Wood in The New Yorker
