Sean O’Beirne Talks Helen Garner On Breakfasters
As part of Black Inc.'s Writers on Writers series, Melbourne author Sean O’Beirne reflects on the life and writing of Helen Garner in a brilliant new essay.
He joins Breakfasters to talk about how it felt – as both a fan and a fellow literary writer - to dive into the world of Garner. “She gives me the most trouble, and leads me to the most interesting questions,” he explains.
O’Beirne tells Mon, Daniel and Bobby about re-visiting Monkey Grip, how he kept his sycophancy in check, and whether Helen has read the essay.
