Pamela Gordon

Pamela Gordon

Pamela Gordon is Janet Frame's literary executor. She was appointed to this role by the author, who was her aunt, close friend and travelling companion. They lived near each other in several locations around New Zealand. Since 2004 Pamela has co-edited and overseen the posthumous publication of ten new Janet Frame titles: novels, stories, poetry, non-fiction and correspondence. Pamela is also chair of the charitable trust that Frame founded in 1999. The Janet Frame Literary Trust makes financial awards to New Zealand writers from Frame’s ongoing royalty income as funds allow. Poetry is Pamela's first love just as it was Janet Frame's, and she is the most proud of having been able to fulfil Frame's dying wish that the collection of poems she had named THE GOOSE BATH should be published. It was also very satisfying to bring two new Frame novels to light and to publish many new stories.
