Janet Frame - short story in Manchester Review — 13.11.12

A controversial account of the Great War by Janet Frame has been published for the first time in the United Kingdom

A controversial account of the Great War by Janet has been published for the first time in the UK by leading arts journal The Manchester Review, published by The University of Manchester's Centre for New Writing.  

The short story Between My Father and the King appears in the New Zealand publication Gorse is Not People (Penguin NZ 2012). (The collection will be published in the USA in early 2013.) The story is Janet Frame's account of her father's return from what she said ‘used to be called the ‘Great' war'. 

Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November, recalling the end of hostilities of World War I in 1918 at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
 
"Janet Frame's short memoir reflects the injustices of the military campaigns of World War One, unlike some of the more superficial commemorations of recent years, and may strike a chord in the run up to Remembrance Sunday", said John Mcauliffe, poet and editor of the Review and lecturer in Creative Writing."
