An Angel at My Table is a spiritually-uplifting portrait of New Zealand poet and novelist Janet Frame. There is nothing more satisfying than having the luxury of watching a life unfold before your eyes, particularly one in which obstacles are overcome. An Angel at My Table celebrates the survival of an artistic soul and takes life-studies to new heights with its honesty, wisdom, and deep down joys.
