The Mijo Tree by Janet Frame
Penguin NZ release date: 23 October 2013
A fable for grownups written by Janet Frame on Ibiza in 1957.
A beautiful and poignant allegory of sexual awakening and disappointment.
Frame bound the manuscript in cardboard covers and tied it with string, and lodged it at the Hocken Library to be seen only after her death.
