434) Janet Frame

Janet Frame (1924 – 2004). New Zealand novelist. 
Her celebrity derived from her dramatic personal history as well as her literary career. Following years of psychiatric hospitalisation, Frame was scheduled for a lobotomy that was cancelled when, just days before the procedure, her début publication of short stories was unexpectedly awarded a national literary prize. The movie "An Angel at My Table" is based on her story.

- "Janet Frame was a redhead. Not only that, she had famously wild frizzy hair. It's the first thing everyone who met her when she was young, mentions about her." http://slightlyframous.blogspot.it/20…/…/redhead-effect.html

- "Janet's red hair was a frizzy tangle that grew straight up from her head:"http://www.nytimes.com/…/boo…/the-girl-from-new-zealand.html
