Description:
This brand new collection of 28 short stories by Janet Frame spans the length of her career and contains some of the best she wrote. None of these stories has been published in a collection before, and more than half are published for the first time in Between My Father and the King. Previously published pieces have appeared in Harper's Bazaar, the NZ Listener, the New Zealand School Journal, Landfall and The New Yorker over the years, and one otherwise unpublished piece, 'The Gravy Boat', was read aloud by Frame for a radio broadcast in 1953. In these stories readers will recognise familiar themes, scenes, characters and locations from Frame's writing and life, and each offers a fresh fictional transformation that will captivate and absorb. From the Publisher 'Unlike many great writers who die leaving minor scraps of literature, Frame left a veritable treasure trove of stories and poems for her estate to manage after her death. Wilkins Farago published her un-published poems The Goose Bath in 2008 to enormous acclaim and these short stories are every bit as important, satisfying and entertaining. Frame was a master of life in miniature.'
