"Daughter Buffalo" is Janet Frame's only book set in the United States--in New York, where she once resided. The theme of human attitudes toward death is depicted through the eyes of the American narrator, Dr. Talbot Edelman. Ms. Frame suggests that rather than face the fact of death, we try to hide from it, to sweep it under the rug.
