Author Helen Garner is well-known for looking to her own life for inspiration for her writing. In this conversation with Caroline Baum at the Sydney Writers' Festival, she discusses her latest book, "The Spare Room", and delivers on her promise to "spill her guts".
From caring for loved ones as they die, to claims made by shonky practitioners of some alternative remedies, to dealing with anger, to why she could never manage to be a good hippy, Garner's conversation is candid and personal. And if all of this isn't enough, she reads from her personal diary for the first time ever in public. For fans and non-fans, this is a fascinating and funny talk.

Absolutely fascinating interview!!
