True or False? #4

Janet Frame used the $2,000 prize from a New Zealand book award to buy a motorcycle. True or false?

Of course it's true! Why would I ask? It seems to surprise people though, that Janet Frame rode motorbikes and motor scooters. She wasn't "other wordly", she was, in her own words, a "practical" person, robust and independent.

Mind you the motorbike she bought on winning the New Zealand Book Award for Fiction for LIVING IN THE MANIOTOTO, was only a Suzuki F50 (50 cc) which is a pretty tame machine!
