Everywhere I Look by Helen Garner

Reviewed by

You could regard this latest book by Helen Garner as simply a collection of various essays, a miscellany if you wish, but to do so would be to give it less than its due. There is nothing casual or accidental about Everywhere I Look. Its coherence may, of course, have much to do with Garner's voice, which is consistent and compelling, as is her actual writing style: those sentences that either build detail on detail or present themselves as arguments, hinged on the crucial word 'but', plus the feeling she offers of being so completely present in her work.
