Description

A remarkable, career-spanning collection of stories from the celebrated, award-winning New Zealand author.

This "powerful collection" ( Kirkus Reviews ) of 28 short stories spans the length of Frame's distinguished career and contains some of the best she wrote. None of these stories have been published in a collection before, and more than half are published for the first time in this outstanding collection. These vividly rendered stories showcase Frame's "extraordinary gifts as an imaginative storyteller with a singular viewpoint . . . with themes of despair, disappointment, and wonder, underscored by Frame's melancholy and vivid turns of phrase" ( Publishers Weekly , Starred Review).

"Frame's ability to distill an experience and sometimes an entire life into a few pages was remarkable. Her characters yearn, and ache, and are overtaken by wonder. She was an emotional cartographer of the highest order, one who deeply understood the inner workings of the human heart." -- The Rumpus

"Writerly genius in every sentence . . . told with charming and often wicked wit." -- Booklist , Starred Review
