Janet Paterson Frame ONZ CBE (28 August – 29 January ) was a New Zealand author.

Since her death, a 12th novel, another volume of poetry, and a handful of short stories have been released. 1 Life Overview Early years.

Janet Frame's previously unpublished novel draws on her own experiences in Menton, France as a Katherine Mansfield Fellow. It is a wonderful social satire, a send-up of the cult of the dead author, and - in the best tradition of Frame - a fascinating exploration of the complexity and the beauty of language.   Janet's meeting with Bernard however and paradoxically puts an end to her creative efforts, as if creation excluded love/sex, or vice versa, which will be confirmed with the experience in Andorra where Frame asserts her belief in the impossible union of the two when she decides to reject El Vici Mario's proposal, and the offer of a life. Frame read The Flowering Cherry in her prime. Her voice is assured, soft and gentle, yet astonishingly clear. She elucidates the poem’s complex meaning by letting the rhythm determine and stress the most significant words. The other poems, read nearly thirty years later, show the elderly Frame at ease with a broader NZ accent. Grace longs to find her place in the world, but first she must learn to be comfortable in her own skin, feathers and all.
