In Hour & Other People's Children, Helen Garner examines the idiosyncratic and bothersome tions of hour by which her characters - adults and children - shape their untidy lives. Hour is about a couple whose marriage, though abandoned in practice, persists in spirit. But the arrival of a new lover obliges them to make a proper separation and draw their child into the conflict. Other People's Children is a witty, sad story of the breakdown of friendship between two women, Scotty and Ruth, and the collapse of their collective household. Scotty loves Ruth's daughter as only the childless can love other people's children, but the broken friendship leaves Scotty with claims. Into this mess blunders Madigan, looking for something that Scotty has long ago trained herself t to give.
Helen Garner was born in Geelong in 1942, and has been writing and publishing since her first book, Monkey Grip, came out in 1977.
