This House of Grief – Helen Garner


This House of Grief by Helen Garner is the true story of the Australian trial for murder of a father following the deaths of his three young sons in a car accident.

It’s a fabulous portrayal of the incident, the participants and the trial. As involving as a thriller, but with real people, this is a sympathetic and absorbing account that leaves you switching your view throughout the course of the trial. The descriptions of the cross-examination of witnesses are particularly fascinating and disturbing.

Very highly recommended.
