Between My Father and the King PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Between My Father and the King free pdf This brand new collection of 28 short stories spans the length of Frame's career and contains some of the best she wrote. None of these stories have been published in a collection before, and more than half are published for the first time in "Between My Father and the King." The piece 'Gorse is Not People' caused Frame a setback in 1954, when Charles Brasch rejected it for publication in "Landfall" and, along with others for one reason or other, deliberately remained unpublished during her lifetime. Previously published pieces have appeared in "Harper's Bazaar, the NZ Listener, " the "New Zealand School Journal, Landfall" and "The New Yorker" over the years, and one otherwise unpublished piece, 'The Gravy Boat', was read aloud by Frame for a radio broadcast in 1953. In these stories readers will recognize familiar themes, scenes, characters and locations from Frame's writing and life, and each offers a fresh fictional transformation that will captivate and absorb.

She is best known for "An Angel at My Table, " which the "Sunday Times" of London called "one of the great autobiographies written in the twentieth century," and inspired Jane Campion's internationally acclaimed film. Throughout her long career, Frame received a wide range of awards, including every literary prize for which she was eligible in New Zealand, honorary membership in the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Literature.
