This House of Grief, by Helen Garner (Text 2014)

Neil's picture

In 2005, three young boys died when their father drove off the road and into a dam. He alone survived, and was subsequently charged with murder. Helen Garner describes the court case as a neutral observer, and examines the character of all the participants. It's an extraordinary achievement, a fascinating and compelling account of family psychology, the process of justice, and everyday grief. More than just true crime, this is a work of great compassion and insight.
