Yesterday was the last day ever that you could Google the word 'peedauntal' and get NO answer.
Peedauntal is a word that close friends artist Bill Brown and author Janet Frame made up together early in their relationship and that figured very much in their first year or so of correspondence. The first book of Janet Frame's letters to Bill (William Theophilus Brown) will be published in a few hours in the USA, and the mystery of the Peedauntal will be solved by reading that volume.
No spoilers please!
