Janet Frames Kingdom by the Sea

Author(s): LEAVER-COOPER, Sheila

Country Stations & History | Don McMillan

Owen Marshall has described Janet Frame as 'New Zealand's most important living writer'. In her autobiography she describes Oamaru as her 'kingdom by the sea'. This book is a guide to that kingdom by the sea - as it was during Janet Frame's childhood and teenage years and as it is today. Sheila Leaver-Cooper's text and Ian S Smith's photographs provide a delightful record of the writer's environs, mediating between the real Oamaru and the Oamaru of Janet Frame's literary imagination.
