"amusing fish-out-of-water story" (Readings)

The excellent independent booksellers Readings of Australia have put up a review of Janet Frame's novel In the Memorial Room. Nicole Mansour, Assistant Manager of the St Kilda store, says:

"Without question, In the Memorial Room captures Frame’s own particular awareness of the universe around her. As a reflective journal, it gives the reader a beautiful window into the author at work. And while the end may leave some without a real feeling of resolution, Frame’s amusing fish-out-of-water story doesn’t actually need any explanation, for it explores not only the writer’s condition, but also the human one."
