High praise for Janet Frame's new story collection

There has been a  recent rush of glowing reviews for the beautiful, funny and moving posthumous collection of new stories by Janet Frame.
Two late reviews have come in for the New Zealand edition Gorse is Not People: New & Uncollected Stories (published in August 2012), coinciding with two early pre-publication reviews for the US edition Between My Father and the King: New and Uncollected Stories to be published in the USA in May 2013.
Both these titles contain exactly the same selection of stories, and reviewers have been united in their glowing praise for Frame's writing and for the collection.
