Eual reading event of 2018 for me along with a Gerald Murnane bender early in the year though I d be hard pressed to say why a Gerald Murnane bender early in the year though I d be hard pressed to say why one thing my wife joined in the reading at first following and later eclipsing me while I took a short detour through a library book that was soon due She loved it though partly because as she ept saying Frame reminded her of me And it s true Frame seemed familiar but like a sister than an alternate self I left her Frame just as she arrived in London had her first date aged early thirties with someone she met on a bus and spent a night at a writers commune whose inhabitants were impressed she had a book out even if Splurp This is the edition I read but owing to the length I reviewed the volumes as they were first published separately1 To the Is Land2 An Angel at my Table3 The Envoy from Mirror CityBut splurp Yes as in that dark sweet liuid with the splurp taste nown as Gregg s Coffee and Chicory p 252 Really Janet Frame wrote that Not I m guessing here syrupy Honest to god I ve rarely seen so many garbled and missing characters I m assuming because the book was scanned from an earlier edition but that s no excuse So publishers here s a challenge Get a proof reader or I ll have the dogs sooled on to you p 38 maybe even sooked that ll show you Later I watched Jane Campion s movie of the same name It s visually stunning but like a series of vignettes than a coherent story Campion hardly used any voice over monologues as segues so the emotionally wrought scenes have little context unless you ve read the book I think she must have conceived this as a homage to the book rather than a work that could stand on its own A friend dropped this off for me at work several months ago Before Christmas Not several months several lifetimes ago I riffled through the pages nowing it would be a cold day IN HELL BEFORE I D HAVE TIME TO READ hell before I d have time to read 600 page autobiography of an esoteric Antipodean author I d ind of sort of heard of You Ladang Hitam di Pulau Dewa know That vague sense that I shouldnow who she is should probably have gone through a Janet Frame phase in college Did my friend think I d be interested because I was a writer Because I d lived in New Zealand How do I get out of this gracefully How long do I hang on to this tome before she thinks I ve forgotten it s hers and.
