Another poem about Janet Frame

Author Tim Jones, the current holder of the New Zealand Society of Authors Janet Frame Memorial Award has posted an interesting satirical poem today on his blog Books in the Trees.

The poem by Laura Solomon, is called:

"Janet Frame’s Adversaries Have Their Way. Janet is Lobotomised and Spends Her Life Selling Hats in Oamaru."

It's a strongly ironical, speculative poem, even a little over-the-top, but of course I enjoyed it, and it's a fine addition to a growing genre of poems about or inspired by Janet Frame.
