OWLS DO CRY 60th Anniversary 1957~2017

 Janet Frame's first novel Owls Do Cry was published in 1957, making this its 60th Anniversary. There are three current English language print editions of Owls Do Cry:  the Australasian one (Text Classic 2014), the UK/Commonwealth one (Virago Modern Classic 2015), and the American one (Counterpoint Press 2016). There is also an audio book available in several formats (produced by Bolinda).

Owls Do Cry is as fresh and relevant as ever, according to this marvellous review by Neil Hegarty in the Irish Times and the illuminating introduction written by Margaret Drabble.

Here are just some of the other covers of translated editions and older English language editions:
