A new online journal called THE WOOL LOVER "dedicated to the wonder fibre wool" has recently been launched and it includes an excerpt from Janet Frame's novel Living in the Maniototo in the first issue.
"Janet Frame’s novels and autobiography capture an artistic sensibility attuned to the vulnerability and yet resilience of our world and humanity in the 20th century. This excerpt from her 1979 novel Living in the Maniototo also manages to weave the cultural value of woollen blankets to New Zealanders into the text."
