‘I love Staying Alive and keep going back to it. Being Alive is just as vivid… But this new book feels even more alive – I think it has a heartbeat’ – MERYL STREEP.This new volume includes a very special poem by Janet Frame: 'The Suicides' which is a poem much-anthologised and much loved for its wisdom and compassion:
let us go in
deep to their despair and their skin and know
they died because words they had spoken
returned always homeless to them.
