Virago Janet Frame titles in print

Thought it might be time to remind readers in 'the Commonwealth' that there are several fresh paperback editions of Janet Frame's work available from Virago Press, in the UK, Canada and all English speaking territories except Australasia.

There's The Daylight & the Dust which is a comprehensive selection of all Frame's published short stories; her autobiography omnibus An Angel at My Table; two of her most acclaimed and well-loved novels Faces in the Water and Living in the Maniototo; and the posthumous novel Towards Another Summer.

More info can be found on the Virago website and blog.

A note for Kiwis, in the "they're reading our author there" category: recent export sales figures showed that in the past year almost one thousand copies of  Virago's Towards Another Summer were sold in Mauritius alone...
