Description

One of the great autobiographies of the twentieth century ...A journey from luminous childhood, through the dark experiences of supposed madness, to the renewal of her life through writing fiction.

It is a heroic story, and told with such engaging tone, humorous perspective and imaginative power' Michael Holroyd, Sunday Times After being misdiagnosed with schizophrenia as a young woman, Janet Frame spent several years in psychiatric institutions.

She escaped undergoing a lobotomy when it was discovered that she had just won a national literary prize.

She then went on to become New Zealand's most acclaimed writer.

As she says more than once in this autobiography: 'My writing saved me.' This edition contains all three volumes of Frame's autobiography: To the Is-Land, An Angel at My Table and An Envoy from Mirror City. 'One of the most beautiful and moving books I have ever read ...A masterpiece ...Janet's autobiography had an enormous effect on me.

She struck a blow right to my heart' Jane Campion
