"good old immortal artists"

Follow this link to see a Channel 9 Dunedin Television news item filmed recently to mark the launch of DEAR CHARLES, DEAR JANET.

The clip features an interview with the literary executors for the estates of the late Charles Brasch and the late Janet Frame.

The phrase "good old immortal artists" comes from a comment Frame wrote to her friend Bill Brown 18 months after Charles Brasch died.

"I do find it so strange in New Zealand with Charles Brasch gone, as if a familiar city had disappeared, yet I should comfort myself by remembering he's still here - as he is when one takes his poems to read. Good old immortal artists."

To buy the book please visit the website of THE HOLLOWAY PRESS.
