"This engaging and often moving book collects the letters between two of New Zealand's greatest writers, supplemented by extracts from published and unpublished memoirs and journals, with some poems, facsimiles of letters and a frontispiece photograph (taken by poet Ruth Dallas) of Frame and Brasch at his cottage in Broad Bay, Otago Peninsula, in 1966. Starting in 1949, when Frame was a shy young writer approaching the august editor of Landfall, and documenting their deepening friendship up to the time of Brasch's death in 1973, the material has been selected and arranged by Janet Frame's niece, Pamela Gordon, and Denis Harold, on behalf of the Janet Frame Literary Trust. An earlier version was read with great success at the Auckland Readers' & Writers' Week in 2009 ... DEAR CHARLES DEAR JANET [was] launched at the Gus Fisher Gallery, 74 Shortland Street, Auckland, at 5.30 pm on Thursday, 26 August, 2010. The speaker [was] Elizabeth Smither"--Holloway Press Website.
