= An Autobiography Includes To the Is Land;
An Angel at my Table and The Envoy from
Mirror City.

Janet Frame brings the skill of an
extraordinary novelist and poet to these
vivid and haunting recollections,
gathered here in a single edition and
complemented by previously unpublished
photographs. From a childhood and
adolescnece spent in a materially poor
but intellectually intense railway family,
through its life as a student and years of
incarceration in mental hospitals,
eventually followed by her entry of the
saving world of writers and the 'Mirror City'
that sustains them, what we are given is
not just a record of the events of a life.
Janet Frame accomplishes ' the
transformation of ordinary facts and ideas
into a shining palace of mirrors'.
Two volumes of the autobiography -
To the Is-Land (1983) and The Envoy from
Mirror City (1985) - won the prestigious
Wattie Book of the Year Award, and the
other volume, An Angel at my Table, was
awarded the Non-fiction prize of the New
Zealand Book Awards is 1984.
