ABC RADIO NATIONAL BRENTLEY FRAZER

Brisbane writer Brentley Frazer’s Scoundrel Days is a gritty, Gen X memoir, recounting wild escapades into an under-culture of drugs and violence and sex. Evoking North Queensland in the 1980s and 90s, it has been described as “Tom Sawyer on acid”, and is written in E–Prime, or English Prime, a language discipline in which there are no tenses of the verb “to be”. Frazer has written about the literary constraint as part of his Phd on experimental creative non-fiction.
