's review

really liked it

this is a very enjoyable read that brings to life two of new zealand's most famous writers, laced with humour and literary references. the characters of janet frame and frank sargeson are skillfully and richly created through their language and actions - it's a work of fiction, but anyone who has read something of either writer will recognise them. 1950s New Zealand and a particular lifestyle from that time is also beautifully evoked.
