Product description

Product Description

Tom Sawyer on acid, a 21st-century On the Road, a Holden Caulfield for punks ... an extraordinary memoir of a wild adolescence, told in a compelling, poetic voice. In Scoundrel Days Brentley Frazer tells the story of his youth; wild, disillusioned, impassioned and desolate. Born into a Christian cult in outback Queensland, Frazer escapes through literature and poetry, drugs and violence, sex and alcohol; and his ensuing rejection of religion, authority and the 'way things are' leads to adventures, desperation and, just possibly, redemption. Beautifully written and urgently told, Scoundrel Days is a visceral, compelling assault on the senses. An at times brutal story articulated with a poet's sensibility, it portrays a walker of edges exploring the dark side while searching for the love essential to build a soul. 
...
AN ASIDE: Frazer wrote Scoundrel Days using an obscure literary constraint known as English Prime. No tenses of the verb 'to be' (are, am, is, was, were, be, been, being and contractions) appear in the text.
