Looking ahead to 2013

It has been a busy year for Janet Frame's Estate, and another busy year looms in 2013!

Here are some of the 2013 highlights we know about so far:

First off, in January, the long awaited Korean translation of Janet Frame's autobiography will be published by Sigongsa.

Also in January the BBC will air their two-part radio adaptation of An Angel at My Table.

In April Text Publishing will release the formerly unpublished novel In the Memorial Room (in Australia and New Zealand).

Counterpoint will publish a US edition of the collection of new and uncollected stories that has been such a success this year in New Zealand (Gorse is Not People). The US title will be Between My Father and the King.

Later in 2013 Counterpoint will publish the American edition of In the Memorial Room.

In May, Neri Pozza of Italy will release a new edition of the Italian translation of Faces in the Water.

Also in 2013 we anticipate: a Romanian edition of The Rainbirds; the first Russian translation of Janet Frame's autobiography; and a new Janet Frame title from CH Beck in Germany.

Late in the year Penguin NZ plan to publish the first ever edition of The Mijo Tree, the fable for adults that Janet Frame wrote while she was living in Ibiza.

 The estate also regularly approves a significant number of educational, anthology and quotation permissions both internationally and within New Zealand. These permissions are granted according to clear principles and guidelines outlined personally by Janet Frame herself.
