Wrestling with the Angel: A Life of Janet Frame - Paperback

2000, ISBN: 9781582430690

Penguin, Toronto, ON, Canada, 1974. Reprint. Paperback. Good Condition. 204 pages. Tanned pages. Front end page is clipped. Page edges slightly foxed. Minor edgewear and creasing to covers. Francis Saxover and Diana Brackley, two scientists investigating a rare lichen, discover it has a remarkable property: it retards the aging process. Francis, realising the implications for the world of an ever-youthful, wealthy elite, wants to keep it secret, but Diana sees an opportunity to overturn the male status quo by using the lichen to inspire a feminist revolution. As each scientist wrestles with the implications and practicalities of exploiting the discovery, the world comes ever closer to learning the truth. "Trouble With Lichen" is a scintillating story of the power wielded by science in our lives and asks how much trust should we place in those we appoint to be its guardians? Quantity Available: 1.

ID: 4209318

The first full-scale-and long-awaited-biography of Janet Frame, sometimes described as the "most distinguished woman writer in English" Janet Frame, born in 1924, is New Zealand's most celebrated and least public author. She has published more than twenty books and has been shortlisted for the Nobel Prize. Her three-volume memoir, described by Michael Holroyd as "one of the greatest autobiographies written this century," was the subject of the award-winning film An Angel at My Table. Relying on documents never previously released, including Janet Frame's diaries, health records, and court transcripts, Michael King reveals the formative episodes of her life-the poverty of her childhood, her enduring sense of being an outsider, the deaths of two sisters by drowning, her incarceration in psychiatric hospitals for the better part of a decade, and her continuing struggle against diagnoses of mental illness. And he deals in frank detail with her life in the decades since her memoirs were published. Insightful, shocking, and unforgettable, Wrestling with the Angel is a remarkable account of a writer who has been pushed to the limit by life and, with equal force, has pushed the powers of her imagination and talent to create extraordinary work. 20th century,arts and literature,australian,authors,biographies,ethnic and national,history,modern (16th-21st centuries),specific groups,women Biographies, Counterpoint
