A friend dropped this off for me at work several months ago Before Christmas Not several months several lifetimes ago I riffled through the pages knowing it would be a cold day in hell before I d have time to read a 600 page autobiography of an esoteric Antipodean author I d kind of sort of heard of You know That vague sense that I should know who she is should probably have gone through a Janet Frame phase in college Did my friend think I d be interested because I was a writer Because I d lived in New Zealand How do I get out of this gracefully How long do I hang on to this tome before she thinks I ve forgotten it s hers and we both get awkward with each other WELL THANK GOD FOR THE PANDEMIC I d been running low on things to read you see And here this was promising weeks of half an hour here another there Eventually I d work my way through this and could feel some sense of accomplishment Once I finally saw my friend again I could return it without having to white lie my way through an explanationI LOVE YOU JANET FRAME Oh this was glorious Raw vulnerable sweet tender The simple facts of a sad and wonderful life presented in the most humble and matter of fact manner that was both heartbreaking and so very endearing Janet Frame born just years before the Great Depression in rural New Zealand was raised in a family that barely held poverty at bay a working class Dad and a worked to bone Mum who wrote poetry in the spare seconds of her day There were times of great joy and times of unimaginable grief Janet an unattractive kid with a bristle of red hair and a mouth full of rotten teeth preternaturally smart and shy made it through college and was in training to become a teacher when she attempted suicide She was sent to a mental hospital diagnosed as schizophrenic and received in eight years of incarceration over 200 electroshock treatments An Angel at My Table originally published as three separate volumes travels through Janet s childhood young adulthood and blossoming as a writer It is surprisingly short on detail of her time at mental institutions in New Zealand but this era informs many of her novels and it is within fiction that Frame finds a way to release the horrors she endured Instead her autobiography after her release focuses on her emergence as a writer her years after she leaves her family home in New Zealand s Otago region to her schooling in Dunedin her formation as a writer in Auckland and the crucial time abroad in Spain and London After she becomes established as a writer she has the emotional and financial resources to revisit her diagnosis and learns she was never schizophrenic This causes a crisis of identity and she returns to full time psychiatric care to learn how to take care of herself and be at one with the world Frame s slightly befuddled childlike writing style belies the intense self awareness of a writer and a woman coming into her own in an era when women were just beginning to assert their voices and their power Despite her lifelong passivity Frame develops a strong enough sense of self to make her way alone wrestling with loneliness sexual frustration ridiculous men and cultural s that don t fit with her carefully constructed but socially perplexing identity I wrapped my arms around this book and cried when it ended It will remain one of the defining points of my pandemic experience that strange and beautiful time I read Janet Frame s autobiography and felt closer to myself and the world as a result
