Description
More than a decade after her death, Janet Frame remains New Zealand's best-known author, on the strength of her novels, stories, and such memoirs as An Angel at My Table, filmed by Jane Campion in 1990. Spanning her 50-year career, these 28 tales include the 1954 "Gorse is Not People"; "The Gravy Boat," read aloud by Frame for a radio broadcast; and the title story, in which the young narrator irrationally fears that her father's loan from the king—used to purchase new furniture—may lead to a surprise inspection by a representative of the crown.

"Frame's ability to distill an experience and sometimes an entire life into a few pages was remarkable. Her characters yearn, and ache, and are overtaken by wonder. She was an emotional cartographer of the highest order, one who deeply understood the inner workings of the human heart."—The Rumpus
