"Writer Grace Cleave has writer's block, and her anxiety is only augmented by her chronic aversion to leaving her home, to be "among people, even for five or ten minutes." And so it is with trepidation that she accepts an invitation to spend a weekend away from London in the north of England. Once there, she feels more and more like a migratory bird, as the pull of her native New Zealand makes life away from it seem transitory. Grace longs to find her place in the world, but first she must be comfortable in her own skin, feathers and all."--Jacket

Scented gardens for the blind : a novel by Janet Frame( Book )

38 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An account of the troubles that befall a young girl when her parents' marriage collapses. Erlene Glace, a New Zealand schoolgirl, stops speaking altogether shortly after her father Edward leaves the family to settle in England. Vera, Erlene's mother, convinces Edward to return, and he travels home in the hope that his daughter's malady is reversible. A weird allegory that offers no obvious interpretation.... Vera is the mother and a mental patient who has willed herself sightless, Erlene, her daughter, has ceased to speak, and Edward, the husband and father, has taken refuge in a distant land. Beyond this is a mind that has burst the confines of everyday individual consciousness and invented its own tormented reality. --Amazon.com & cgi.ebay.com

In the memorial room : a novel by Janet Frame( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Harry Gill, a moderately successful writer of historical fiction, has been awarded the annual Watercress-Armstrong Fellowship; a living memorial' to the poet, Margaret Rose Hurndell. He arrives in the small French village of Menton, where Hurndell once lived and worked, to write. But the Memorial Room is not suitable-it has no electricity or water. Hurndell never wrote here, though it is expected of Harry. Janet Frame's previously unpublished novel draws on her own experiences in Menton, France as a Katherine Mansfield Fellow. It is a wonderful social satire, a send-up of the cult of the dead author, and-in the best tradition of Frame-a fascinating exploration of the complexity and the beauty of language."--
The edge of the alphabet, a novel by Janet Frame( Book )

28 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary book justifies once again the statement John Barkham made when we published Miss Frame's first novel - Owls do Cry. "Janet Frame," wrote Mr. Barkham, "is the most talented writer to have come out of New Zealand since Katherine Mansfield." "Few novelists since Joyce," writes William Peden in the Saturday Review, "have so successfully portrayed the world of dreams and illusions. Throughout The Edge of the Alphabet, Miss Frame maintains a remarkable balance between the comic and the serious, the commonplace and the bizarre."
