My favorite non fiction... 19 février 2002
Par Frances C. Morrier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In the first volume Frame beautifully describes her New Zealand childhood. Her descriptions of her family, their day-to-day lives, and their economic and personal hardships, stay with the reader long after reading Volume I.
In Volume II she describes her college years and subsequent mental mis-diagnosis, which led to several years of institutionalization. Rather than leaving the reader depressed, somehow she brings one into the experience but leaves us wondering at her resilience and ability to continue writing.
Volume III contains her account of her growing acceptance as a writer and her association with other well-known New Zealand writers. This is a must for anyone interested in: a brilliant picture of an artist; New Zealand life; good non-fiction writing.

Brilliance from New Zealand 7 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Janet Frame's autobiography is, by far, the most amazing non-fiction book I've ever had the chance to read. While covering the difficulties of her childhood (living in poverty, the deaths of her sisters by drowning), her young adulthood (shyness & social awkwardness, being misdiagnosed with schizophrenia & hospitalized), and her blossoming into the brilliant writer she has now become, the language and artistry of Janet's transforms the narrative beyond its sadnesses. One of the best writers around, her memoir is also a good introduction to her work before you plunge into the strange, evocative fiction. I heartily recommend the entire body of her work.

Right up there with Angela's Ashes 7 janvier 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
An unbelievable story. How anyone could have endured all that she went through and be able to look back and recount all that she suffered is amazing. She tells of her life from her childhood , her college life, her treatment as a mental patient, and her coming home so descriptively that you are there with her. If you like Angela's Ashes or Wally Lamb's She's Come Undone, you must read Janet Frame's story.

To The Is-Land 19 avril 2003
Par nicolemoshi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
To forever capture the past in the present - to be always telling the tale, towards the destination and yet always on the go, postponing the end of self-perception and portrayal: one does not write an autobiography about what one gained but what one lost. Janet Frame shows an intense desire (and flair) in retaining her possessions - a place, an object, a thought, an emotion, a fragment of memories - in writing. It deals with loss and trauma in an honest, realistic, and fairly subdued manner, making it more geniune than a lot of best-selling memoirs. Frame has been described as an ego-centric writer in her fiction - always writing about and examining herself - but in her autobiography she reminds us of existential moments when one detaches from one's self and looks at the world: the unnamable sadness that we do and do not experience. The imagery here is also a lot richer than most autobiographies - if you enjoy down-to-earth and yet beautiful and touching stories, this is something you should read.
