Excellent condition for the age of the book

This is the second volume in Janet Frame's autobiography, in which New Zealand's most distinguished living novelist tells of how she left the close-knit family home in Oamaru for teacher training college in Dunedin.

Her college years were a time of intense loneliness that culminated in an attempted suicide and committal to a mental institution. Labelled as a schizophrenic, Janet spent eight harrowing years in psychiatric hospitals until the publication of her prizewinning collection of stories won her a discharge.
