it was amazing

I read this a few years ago after hearing furious debate over this book. I loved it. It wasn't an easy or comfortable read but I felt that Helen Garner raised some very legitimate questions and a debate should be had about such things. I didn't find her anti-feminist in any way and it was liberating as a strong minded woman to thing about things such as responsibility, power and the best way to handle things. No easy answers to difficult questions though. She is not only a fiercely intelligent woman, but a talented writer.
