In the Memorial Room - US release

In the Memorial Room
Janet Frame's 13th novel, and her last novel to be published

US edition released today Tuesday 10th December 2013 by Counterpoint Press.

Coincidentally the 10th of December is a significant day in Frame's career: it was the day in 1952 that the NZ literary organisation P.E.N. signed off on the certificate for her Hubert Church Award for 'the best Prose by a New Zealander' for her first book The Lagoon and other stories.

See my blog post last year commemorating the 60th anniversary of that life-changing event.
