"Janet Frame’s brilliant particularities" ~ The Rumpus

"Frame’s ability to distill an experience and sometimes an entire life into a few pages was remarkable. Her characters yearn, and ache, and are overtaken by wonder. She was an emotional cartographer of the highest order, one who deeply understood the inner workings of the human heart."

Mary Otis reviews Between My Father & the King for The Rumpus.

 US edition (Counterpoint Press)
"Frame wrote with great emotional acuity about family. She inhabited her child narrators with longing, fierceness, and complexity."
Australian edition (Wilkins Farago)

New Zealand edition (Penguin NZ)
