Description:

Auckland. 1985. Hutchinson & Company. 1st Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. Winner Wattie Book Of The Year in New Zealand. . hardcover. ISBN: 0091616905. inventory # 7587. FROM THE PUBLISHER - THE ENVOY FROM MIRROR CITY is the third book of Janet Frame's three-volume autobiography, described by Michael Holroyd as 'One of the greatest autobiographies written this century.' It describes her travels overseas and entry into the saving world of writers and the 'Mirror City' that sustains them. First published in 1985, it won the prestigious Wattie Book of the Year Award. In the 1980s Frame authored three volumes of autobiography (TO THE IS-LAND, AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE and THE ENVOY FROM MIRROR CITY) which collectively traced the course of her life to her return to New Zealand in 1963. Director Jane Campion and screenwriter Laura Jones adapted the trilogy for television broadcast. It was eventually released as an award-winning feature film, AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE. Actresses, Kerry Fox, Alexia Keogh and Karen Fergusson portrayed the author at various ages. Frame's autobiographies sold better than any of her previous publications, and Campion's successful film adaptation of the texts, introduced a new generation of readers to her work. These successes increasingly pushed Frame into the public eye. Frame said the autobiographies let her set the record straight regarding her past and in particular her mental status. However, critical and public speculation has continued to focus on her mental health. In 2007, after Frame's death, The New Zealand Medical Journal published an article by a medical specialist who proposed that Frame may have registered on what is referred to as the autistic spectrum, a suggestion that was disputed by the author's literary executor.
