    These two magnificent hardback volumes commemorate the 75th birthday of Helen Garner, surely Melbourne’s (indeed, Australia’s) unofficial writer laureate. Stories includes writing first published in Garner’s acclaimed Postcards from Surfersas well as other, previously uncollected, stories. And True Stories combines her collections True Stories, The Feel of Steeland Everywhere I Look with later short work – including a stunning brand-new opening essay on the tragic case of a Sudanese widow and mother of seven who drove her car into a lake in Melbourne, drowning three of her children. As James Wood raved in the New Yorker, Garner is ‘a recording angel at life’s secular apocalypses'.
