Janet Frame's Kingdom by the Sea

Author(s): Sheila Leaver-Cooper

New Zealand Literature

Owen Marshall has described Janet Frame as 'New Zealand's most important living writer'. In her autobiography she describes Oamaru as her 'kingdom by the sea'. This book is a guide to that kingdom by the sea - as it was during Janet Frame's childhood and teenage years and as it is today. Sheila Leaver-Cooper's text and Ian S Smith's photographs provide a delightful record of the writer's environs, mediating between the real Oamaru and the Oamaru of Janet Frame's literary imagination.
