Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 158243185X, Paperback)The first full-scale biography of Janet Frame, described by some as the most distinguished woman writer in English.
Janet Frame is New Zealand's most celebrated and least public author. She has published some two-dozen works, been shortlisted for the Nobel Prize, and was he subject of Jane Campion's award-winning film An Angel at My Table. Relying on previously examined documents, including Frame's diaries and health records, King reveals the formative episodes of her life. Insightful, sometimes shocking, and always unforgettable, Wrestling with the Angel is a remarkable account of a writer who has been pushed to the limit by life and has pushed back, using the powers of her imagination to create extraordinary work.
