Abstract

Under the name Janet Frame (1924-2004), Nene Janet Paterson Clutha is certainly one of New Zealand’s best known novelists and short story writers. Her reputation is international, and there is high regard for all her work, especially the autobiographical sequence: To the Is-land, An Angel at my Table, and The Envoy from Mirror City. While Frame’s The Lagoon and Other Stories (1951) gained her prizes, it was Owls Do Cry, her first full-length novel, published in 1957, that established her literary career. The famed cover illustration by Dennis Beytagh on this work has become a classic.
