Review An Angel at my Table Janet Frame ✓ 2 Read & download An Angel at my Table Read & download ¿ 2 L'autobiografia in tre volumi di Janet Frame è stata salutata come un vero evento letterario L'isola del presente racconta una infanzia e una adolescenza nella Nuova Zelanda degli anni '20 e '30 in cui le vicende familiari sono segnate dalla po. She was ugly She tried to kill herself Several times she mentioned her rotting teeth implying the inferiority complex she much have developed because of it her wild shock of curly hair which almost always elicited the suggestion from others to have it straightened her lack of fashionable clothes At one dance party she attended no one had asked her to dance so she went home early by herself then pretended the next day that she had a blast the night previousHer family was poor and she had suffered the deaths of two of her siblings Mistakenly diagnosed as schizophrenic at that time when very little was known about mental illnesses she was born in 1924 in Dunedin New Zealand she spent some eight years in and out of mental institutions Earlier she had left her hometown for the city to study and become a teacher but this didn t pan out And so there she was this poor miserable young woman physically unattractive with rotting teeth later extracted so now with dentures most likely with halitosis a failure in her intended career carrying the stigma of being a madwoman a virgin and probably single for lifeYet she had made me adore her This is the second of her three volume autobiography I haven t read the first and the third but this one was enough for me to see the inner beauty of this writer who as she draws you into her pain longings and dreams could make you whisper through the pages as if she could hear you no no no you are not ugly You are special truly beautiful and you weave your words like fragrant garlands from heavenly gardens though you may have written them under the most abject conditions while you worked as a housemaid waitress and hotel chambermaid I imagine you blushing now Janet Frame Jean But didn t you yourself write it here after reading one of Tolstoys masterpieces There is a freedom born from the acknowledgement of greatness in literature as if one gave away what one desired to keep and in giving there is a new space cleared for growth an onrush of a new season beneath a secret sun Acknowledging any great work of art is like being in love one walks on air any decline destruction death are within not in the beloved it is a falling in love with immortality a freedom a flight in paradise

SoIs it blasphemy to say that I prefer her nonfiction to her fictionHer fiction was dense poetic experimental all of which I fully appreciateHer autobiography is just her truth which I absolutely love This resonated so much with me It s one of those books that says exactly what I would want to say to the world if I d had the presence of mind to say it firstShe was diagnosed with schizophrenia but wasn t schizophrenic She was autistic if ever a woman wasSoIf you d like to hear a literary genius describe what that s like what it s really like I recommend this seriesI also love and recommend the film of the same name
