A Gorse by any other name...

Gorse is Not People: New and Uncollected Stories is a 'treasure trove' of posthumously published stories by Janet Frame that has won hearts in New Zealand since its publication in August. It has featured for 16 weeks so far, on the Nielsen NZ fiction bestseller chart, and has also attracted glowing reviews such as:

"work of a quality that adds significantly to her oeuvre"
"Frame's skill and magic at work"
"the reader is effortlessly transported"
"fairy tales for adults"

Now this collection will soon be published in the USA under a different name (also taken from one of the stories in the collection):
