The Goose Bath
Publisher:Random House New Zealand Ltd
Janet Frame used to keep geese, using the base of an old garden fountain as their bath. In later years the geese went but the bath was brought indoors as a receptacle into which Janet piled her poems and jottings as she reworked and developed them. Over time the goose bath overflowed with paper, including hundreds of unpublished poems. By the time Janet died she had named her hoped-for but elusive new selection “The Goose Bath”. From this treasure trove, Pamela Gordon, Denis Harold and Bill Manhire have selected over a hundred poems that illustrate the shape of her life. First published in hardback in 2006, the collection received critical acclaim and won the poetry category at the 2007 Montana New Zealand Book Awards. This flexibind edition links it with the other titles of the Janet Frame Collection.
