Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for DAUGHTER BUFFALO by Janet Frame.

"DAUGHTER BUFFALO is Janet Frame's only book set in the United States - in New York, where she once resided. The theme of human attitudes toward death is depicted through the eyes of the American narrator, Dr. Talbot Edelman. Ms. Frame suggests that rather than face the fact of death, we try to hide from it, to sweep it under the rug."

"She writes with a beauty that confers a morbid grandeur, that makes poetry of the particular, the private, the enclosed. And she has written a novel as gleaming as pure, black, shattered glass."
- New York Times

"New Zealander Frame's 1972 novel Daughter Buffalo, her only work set in America, relates in an original fashion a doctor's reaction to a patient's death."
- Publishers Weekly (US)

"As in previous novels . . . the author examines conventional attitudes toward death with both satire and wistful poetry."
- Time Magazine
