If you enjoyed David Ballantyne’s Sydney Bridge Upside Down you’ll want to read Janet Frame’s “In the memorial room”, a previously unpublished novel written in 1974.
This novel draws on Janet Frame’s own experiences in Menton, France as a Katherine Mansfield Fellow. It is a wonderful social satire, a send-up of the cult of the dead author, and—in the best tradition of Frame—a fascinating exploration of the complexity and the beauty of language.

This is a great novel by Donna Malane. I really enjoyed her main character, Di Rowe. I would describe the style of writing as darkly humorous. It’s a fast paced thriller set in Wellington and the Hutt Valley. Very descriptive geographically, which puts you right there. Really good twists and turns in the story itself with an unexpected (for me) ending. This is the first in a series featuring this new character. The second book to look out for is My brother’s keeper
