A superb autobiography about the life of a writer.
on 26 February 2015
This is an extraordinarily honest autobiography, written entirely without pretension. Frame, a New Zealander, reveals the amazing intensity and richness of her childhood growing up in small towns in New Zealand in the period before the Second World War, before relating the events of her troubled life in England. Truly a remarkable biography, not mentioning hugely rewarding for the reader. I read it several decades ago when it first appeared as three books. It's been a delight to be able to study it now in e-book form.
