It is 1955. New Zealand’s literary landscape is about to change forever. Janet Frame meets Frank Sargeson.
Behind his famous hedge, Frank has been having a difficult time with his writing, but the veggies are nearly ready and his old mate Harry is due any day.
Frank, the father of New Zealand literature, is about to see his idyllic world rupture when Janet arrives to stay – with her riddling speech and baffling behaviour – and not long after, Harry reappears. A beautifully funny, clever, and very moving literary love triangle.
