The Watercress Novel

Great to see anticipation is growing about this delightful novel that Janet Frame wrote in Menton in 1974 but never published.

"I'm sorry not to be doing anything with the novel I wrote in France," she said, some years later.

In the Memorial Room even found itself a place as a 'character' (fictionalised as "The Watercress novel") in her later masterpiece Living in the Maniototo (1979).
