The Penguin Janet Frame

In the wake of the exciting press release from Penguin NZ about their 3 book deal with the Janet Frame estate, I was interviewed by Erina O'Donohue of Radio New Zealand National for an item that aired on Morning Report on Wednesday March 23rd. Here's a link to a podcast of the news report which also includes a short reading by Janet Frame herself, from her stunning 1994 performance at a literary festival in Wellington. She reads from her short story 'My cousins who could eat cooked turnips'.

I was also interviewed by Debbie Porteous of the Otago Daily Times about the news of the three book deal with Penguin NZ.
