When Janet Frame wrote Owls Do Cry

Sixty years ago:
Janet Frame outside Frank Sargeson's army hut
where she wrote Owls Do Cry.
In 1955 when Janet Frame wrote Owls Do Cry she lived during the weekdays in a hut out the back of Frank Sargeson's bach at Esmond Road Takapuna (Auckland) and every weekend she went to nearby Northcote to stay with her sister June and her brother-in-law Wilson Gordon and their three children.

June and her children outside 61 Gladstone Road, Northcote, in 1955.
