Owls Do Cry on a roll

Wenn Eulen Schrein
Janet Frame
A new German edition of Janet Frame's first novel Owls Do Cry is published this month.
(sublicensed paperback edition)
Owls Do Cry was first published in German translation in 1961 and has been reissued several times since then. (This is at least the 8th German edition, to my knowledge - not counting reprints.)
This new German edition comes hot on the heels of the new UK edition published by Virago Modern Classics, which is receiving some marvellous notices, including positive reviews in the Irish Times, the Independent, the GuardianBBC Radio 4 and Radio Scotland.

Owls Do Cry, Virago Modern Classic January 2016
Here are some other current and recent international editions of Owls Do Cry.
A new American edition is forthcoming in 2017, 60 years after first publication.

Here is a link to the Janet Frame Facebook page album of some Owls Do Cry Covers.
