Faces in the Water on Guardian Top Ten List

Guardian: Ten Best Books About Incarceration

Faces in the Water
by Janet Frame is published by Virago (and also by Random House Australia as well as by Random House New Zealand).

The recent Virago Modern Classics edition of Faces in the Water has a beautiful introduction by Hilary Mantel that is a significant work of writing in itself.

Nice to see this influential book by Janet Frame recognised in the company of Awakenings, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, Jane Eyre, The Collector etc.
