The Last Days of Chez Nous & Two Friends showcases the range of one of Australia’s greatest writers. These two scripts for films-The Last Days of Chez Nous was directed by Gillian Armstrong in 1991, and Two Friends by Jane Campion in 1986-are funny, sharp observations of relationships and friendships that are as intimate and engrossing as Helen Garner’s acclaimed novels. This edition comes with a new introduction by the internationally renowned screenwriter Laura Jones, winner of the inaugural Australian Writers’ Guild Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016.
