really liked it
Read in January, 1997

To the Island and Angel at My Table are both autobiographical portrayals(I read them over 10 years ago). Angel at My Table, I believe, is the one that explores her childhood, and To the Is Land is a moving tale of her mental breakdown and long term hospitalization. It has a very New Zealand flavor, in that the prose is honest, stark, and fresh. She is highly esteemed in New Zealand. There was an excellent film made of Angel at My Table.
