'One of the greatest autobiographies written this century'
So commented Michael Holroyd in a Sunday Times review of this extraordinary memoir. This single volume contains all three sections - To the Is-land, An Angel at My Table (memorably filmed by Jane Campion) and The Envoy from Mirror City. The trilogy moves from a childhood and adolescence spent in a materially poor but intellectually intense family, through life as a student and years of incarceration in mental hospitals, to entry into the saving world of writers and the 'Mirror City' that sustains them. Janet Frame's autobiography is one of the twentieth century's great works of literature.
