An Inward Sun - The World of Janet Frame
by Michael King

Contains numerous photos throughout.

An Inward Sun is an illustrated life of famed New Zealand author Janet Frame.

In text and photographs it explores the textures of her life and times and the formative episodes that shaped her writing: poverty in her childhood, the deaths of two sisters by drowning, incarceration in mental hospitals, the fight to prove her sanity, her enduring sense of being an outsider.

The book also reveals a person never seen before by the public at large: Frame playing pool., riding one of her two motorcycles, tap-dancing. As Michael King notes, the private Frame is vibrant, wickedly funny, an enjoyer and enhancer of life.

Many of the book's photographs are from Frame's own albums and have never been published previously. Others come from the collections of family and friends, and from the contemporary Dunedin photographer Reg Graham.

More accessible than Wrestling with the Angel, Michael King's acclaimed biography of Frame, this book is an ideal companion volume to that work. And for those unfamiliar with Frame's life and writing, it serves as an engaging introduction to both.
