Review

'How brilliant is the writing in Scoundrel Days? Like poetry written with a nail gun. Shit he's good. Uncommonly good. He's got a great eye, but also a lot of muscle to his writing, and that combo doesn't come along often enough. I hope he's got a lot more prose in him.' Nick Earls 'Can't remember the last time I read anything this gritty and compelling. Frazer doesn't write like an angel. He writes like a demon. Scoundrel Days is one of the finest Australian works in years.' Brett D'Arcy, winner of WA Premier's Book Award for Mindless Ferocity of Sharks 'With a poet's eye for locating the marvellous within the commonplace and a novelist's ear for the nuances and rhythms of natural speech, Brentley Frazer has crafted a unique narrative from the myths and rumours of life and a wild imagination. Scoundrel Days is fiercely original, inspirational, and will no doubt find a wide, varied readership.' Anthony Lawrence 'An artist's true journey from blindness (or, what we call youth) into glimmerings of sight (coming of age). The writing is wonderful, and the writer lives in the tradition of the Beats, yet has managed to create something new through his use of the E-prime constraint.' Dr Venero Armanno, author of Black Mountain and The Dirty Beat

"Can't remember the last time I read anything this gritty and compelling. Frazer doesn't write like an angel. He writes like a demon. Scoundrel Days is one of the finest Australian works in years." --Brett D'Arcy, WA Premiers prize for Mindless Ferocity of Sharks
