Time To Make A Song And Dance: Cultural Revolt in Auckland in the 1960s
‘The Terrible Screaming’ is a short story by the New Zealand writer Janet Frame, in which a city is awakened in the night by a terrible screaming which everyone ignores, fearing that if they admit to hearing it they will be labelled insane. The ‘city’, Murray Edmond suggests, can be read as New Zealand, or more specifically Auckland, where Frame - who might be claimed as ‘our writer of the 60s’ - spent 15 months in Oakley psychiatric hospital.
