1 King, Michael Wrestling with the Angel: a Life of Janet Frame
158243185X / 9781582431857; Doris Lessing wrote "I am impressed by this biography. Reading it reminded me what an extraordinary woman she is, overcoming such obstacles, and making fresh and good use of them in her work. " Insightful, sometimes shocking and always unforgettable, Wrestling with the Angel is a remarkable account of a writer who has been pushed to the limit by life and has pushed back, using the powers of her imagination to create extraordinary work. Janet Frame is New Zealand's most celebrated and least public author. She has published some two doxen works, been shortlisted for the Nobel Prize, and was the subject of Jane Campion's award-winning film, Angel at My Table. Relying on previously unexamined documents, including Frame's diaries and health records, King reveals the formative episodes of her life. 583 pages, including photographs, bibliography, notes, and index. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
