"They meant abnormal. Divisions of the kind were fashionable at that time, and it was so easy to stifle one's need to help by deciding that help could neither be accepted nor understood." -- Janet Frame
Janet Paterson Frame, ONZ, CBE (28 August 1924 - 29 January 2004) was a New Zealand author. She wrote eleven novels, four collections of short stories, a book of poetry, an edition of juvenile fiction, and three volumes of autobiography during her lifetime. Since her death, a twelfth novel, a second volume of poetry, and a handful of short stories have been released. Frame was known for her dramatic personal history as well as her writing. She was scheduled for a lobotomy that was cancelled when her first book was awarded a national literary prize. Some of these experiences featured in her work, such as her autobiographical trilogy, and also in director Jane Campion's popular film adaptation of the texts. Frame was described by scholar Simone Oettli as a writer who simulaneously sought fame and anonymity, Frame eschewed the dominant New Zealand literary realism of the post-war era, combining prose, poetry, and modernist elements with a magical realist style, winning many literary prizes despite mixed critical and public reception.
