About the Author:

Recipient of the prestigious Commonwealth Writers Prize in 1989, Janet Frame has long been admired for her startlingly original prose and formidable imagination. A native of New Zealand, she is the author of eleven novels, four collections of stories, a volume of poetry, a children's book, and her heartfelt and courageous autobiography, all published by George Braziller.

Review:

“Miss Frame, a New Zealander, is endowed with a poet's imagination, and her prose has beauty, precision, a surging momentum, and the quality of constant surprise.... [She] has, unquestionably, written an extremely fine book.”
- The Atlantic

“In freshness of language and vision Miss Frame is the most remarkable New Zealand writer since Katherine Mansfield and Frank Sargeson.”
- The Times Literary Supplement
