"I love the work of the New Zealand writer Janet Frame. I have owned this autobiography for years, and I confess that the length of it intimidated me. But yesterday I decided to take it on. It's actually three volumes in one, Even the first page drew me into the poetry of her prose. In some ways she was a magic realist, and in reading the consciousness she brought to living, I'm already understanding more about her." Mar 29, 2016 03:26PM
