The reputation of Janet Frame, modern New Zealand writer, languishes. [Janet Frame] will bring more recognition to Frame. Among its well-known contributors are Patricia Moran, Suzette A. Henke and Claire Bazin. The collection truly has a global reach, with professors in the U.S., England, France, and Australia, and all of the essays are written by women. Given Frame's opposition to patriarchy and preoccupation with "Womanly" language and feminist themes, women bring a unique point of view to analysis of Frame. Essays are organized around three themes: Frame's autobiography, Frame's short stories, and Frame's novels. The essays explore generally neglected topics in Frame's writings: her mother's Christadelphian faith; Frame's relationships with two 20th century icons, one an important artist of the Bay Area Figurative Movement (William Theophilus Brown) and the other a by now infamous scientist (John Money) who explored gender and sexuality at Johns Hopkins. Henke's "Janet Frame's New Zealand Odyssey," previously published in Shattered Subjects, is made accessible. Henke explores Frame through trauma studies. Comparative studies include Frame and Doris Lessing and Frame and Virginia Woolf. French scholars enrich Frame studies with little-evoked Gallic approaches, using Bakhtin, Foucault and Rabelais. Thus, the book is central to Frame studies.
