For Sale

Another of Janet Frame's childhood homes, this time at 13 Ferry Street, Wyndham, Southland, New Zealand.

NZ $45,000. My mother June Frame was born in this house. Here are the details:

I don't personally recommend that anybody attempt to buy up every house that Janet Frame ever lived in. There is a wonderful place to visit at 56 Eden Street Oamaru that is a fine tribute to Janet Frame, and the Trust that cares for that house has no major sponsor at all - they have to beg for small grants to keep their house maintained and open to the public.

The "Friends of Janet Frame House" PO Box 180 OAMARU would welcome your support.
