Works about this Work

Creditable or Reprehensible? The Literary Journalism of Helen Garner Willa McDonald , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Literary Journalism across the Globe : Journalistic Traditions and Transnational Influences 2011; (p. 260-275)
'This essay examines some of the critical reactions to Garner’s writing, in particular her long-form literary journalism, and proposes that her work has provoked censure when it has refused to follow traditional journalistic conventions; chosen not to establish a clear contract of intention with its readership; privileged the exploration of the writer’s emotions over intellectual frameworks; and challenged traditional notions of subjectivity and objectivity. What I hope to demonstrate is that a closer engagement with Garner’s nonfiction by academic critics would be a fruitful contribution to the field of literary journalism' (p.260).
