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David Ballantyne’s Sydney Bridge Upside Down you’ll want to read Janet Frame’s “In the memorial room”, a previously unpublished novel written in 1974.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.
