About this product
- DescriptionHarry Gill, a moderately successful writer of historical fiction, has been awarded the annual Watercress-Armstrong Fellowship--a 'living memorial' to the poet, Margaret Rose Hurndell. He arrives in the small French village of Menton, where Hurndell once lived and worked, to write. But the Memorial Room is t suitable -- it has electricity or water. Hurndell never wrote here, though it is expected of Harry. Janet Frame's previously unpublished vel draws on her own experiences in Menton, France as a Katherine Mansfield Fellow. It is a wonderful social satire, a send-up of the cult of the dead author, and -- in the best tradition of Frame -- a fascinating exploration of the complexity and the beauty of language.
