Faces in the Water
By

Rating
Written with unsparing precision and astounding immediacy, Faces in the Water takes the reader behind the walls of two hospitals--Cliffhaven and Treecroft--and into the hearts and minds of its confused and tormented patients. The experience of insanity and "the utter, the naked precariousness of existence" is conveyed with extraordinary insight and poetic brilliance.

Reviews

Miss Frame, a New Zealander, is endowed with a poet's imagination, and her prose has beauty, precision, a surging momentum, and the quality of constant surprise.... [She] has, unquestionably, written an extremely fine book. In freshness of language and vision Miss Frame is the most remarkable New Zealand writer since Katherine Mansfield and Frank Sargeson.
