    One thought on “Wrestling with the Angel

    1. This book started me reading Janet Frame I have to confess that I had only before read Owls Do Cry, and that was at high school, yet Frame is one of NZ s greatest I knew of Michael King s reputation and so I recommended this book to the Book Discussion group I was in not realising how terribly lengthy it was When I then borrowed it from the library I got quite a shock Nevertheless, I read it cover to cover, as did most of the group, and though they all commented on the length, they all enjoyed i [...]

    2. awesome a lengthy read but well worth it to dispel inaccurate facts about Janet Frame

    3. Absolutely brilliant account of the life of Janet Frame, one of my all time favourite reads.

    4. A noted New Zealand historian and writer, King debunks the bogie that followed Frame throughout her life, that she was insane She was diagnosed as schizophrenic by institutional doctors who interpreted her imagination as evidence of hallucinations She was a gifted and unusually introverted child who helped the doctors by feeding them what they wanted to hear In England she found physicians who quickly disputed the diagnosis From then on she managed what few writers, notably single women writers, [...]

    5. Painstaking attention to important but often overlooked details in this account of the writer s life focusing on her struggle to write in between episodes of mental illness King does a good job of writing realistically about the illness without dramatizing it Frame doesn t get lost in it as can sometimes happen when the lives of people with severe mental health issues are in biographies.

    6. This book has special significance for me as I worked in a psychiatric hospital from the mid 70 s and could relate to Ms Frames experience Something interesting regarding the author and Ms Frame Both died within days of each other.

    7. Like all books by Michael King it is impeccably researched We are so fortunate to have this biography of the Author Janet Frame written by an equally excellent, though different, Author And especially so as they both died quite soon afterwards A huge double loss to NZ s literary scene.


    8. Covers much of the material in JF s autobiography plus a bit extra Worth reading
