In the Memorial Room by Janet Frame was described by The Australian as "A curtain call by one of the world's greatest authors", by the New York Times as "a short, funny and often beautifully written novel", and by Radio New Zealand as "Genuinely laugh out loud funny". The Sunday Star-Times reviewer said: "It is a formidable work. It is also amusing and satirical, poetic and provocative - a real joy to read."

 'a beautifully crafted artistic and philosophical creation that explores the nature of communication and exposes Frame's love of language ...' ~ Library Journal
