About this title

Synopsis:

In Monkey Grip, Helen Garner charts the lives of a generation. Her characters are exploring new ways of loving and living - and nothing is harder than learning to love lightly. Nora and Javo are trapped in a desperate relationship. Nora's addiction is romantic love; Javo's is hard drugs. The harder they pull away, the tighter the monkey grip. A lyrical, gritty, rough-edged novel that deserves its place as a classic of Australian fiction.

About the Author:

Helen Garner was born in Geelong, Victoria, and was educated there and at Melbourne University. She has worked as a high-school teacher and freelance journalist, and has won numerous literary awards. She has published a large number of books, both fiction and non-fiction, including Postcards from Surfers, The Children's Bach, The Feel of Steel, The First Stone and, most recently, Joe Cinque's Consolation and The Spare Room.
