Marking 20 years since Janet Frame died

Janet Frame died in Dunedin 20 years ago today after a long and and eventful life. From working class origins she became a world famous author yielding her 'memory and a pocketful of words' with enormous talent and a disciplined dedication to her craft. She has often been called a genius but she herself attributed the secret of her success to "1 percent inspiration and 99% perspiration". πŸ“š
She is dearly missed by her loved ones πŸ’” but she lives on in her amazing work which continues to be reprinted around the world in English and many other languages. πŸ“š Still keeping me busy in the role she handed to me of managing her copyright and caring for her charitable trust🌹
