The Carpathians book. The magic of The Carpathians is how Janet Frame’s writing carries the story with distinct poise, the prose poetic and therefore mysterious, unique, and as always lovely-I dog-eared the shit out of it because I kept finding all this cool stuff to revisit. It is playful in some ways (having a self-proclaimed imposter for a character is hilarious), but with a hint of danger as there is a pleasant touch of the unknown and a surreal tweak of reality - at times, it’s unsettling.
